Two dozen tornados in January? You don't say! Maybe there's something going on that doesn't get fixed because the region's residents keep voting for the people who definitely won't fix them? Via CNN:

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said Thursday evening there have been six deaths in the state following the severe weather outbreak that spawned more than two dozen tornadoes across the South.

“I am sad to have learned that six Alabamians were lost to the storms that ravaged across our state. My prayers are with their loved ones and communities. We are far too familiar with devastating weather, but our people are resilient. We will get through it and be stronger for it,” the governor said in a tweet.

The governor didn’t say where in the state the fatalities occurred but there were five storm-related deaths in Autauga County, according to Coroner Buster Barber.

And last night, as part of the same storm system, there was a thunderstorm here in Philadelphia. In January. Not unheard of, but definitely unusual.

Because the very industries that offer well-paid jobs in the South are maybe killing us all? Nah, it's God's will! Just ask a Republican politician!
