Dear 100 Hour Board,

I've heard a lot about the mile-wide tornado. I've heard it started in Alabama and ended in Rome, Georgia and at some point was heading towards South Carolina. So I'm curious what path it actually took. I've done some brief searching but haven't found anything conclusive. So what path did the mile-wide tornado actually take?

Dear Pumpkin Strudel, 

There is a lovely little map that will show you the path of all the tornadoes. If you want to learn more, be sure to search for "Tuscaloosa Tornado" because that is what the news reports are calling it. But make sure you're reading about the right one because there was another big tornado that hit the area back in the late 90's.
