It must have been really frightening for all of the people in the Georgia Dome, to suddenly hear the tornado overhead and to see the scoreboard swinging overhead. I'm not sure why they didn't give the people some warning, and the National Weather Bureau was tracking the storm heading in their direction. It may have been they didn't announce the warning because they were afraid of panic. I just know if I were there I would want to be warned. Later this evening they showed scenes from downtown Atlanta. It was a powerful storm that hit Atlanta. I haven't heard, yet, but hopefully there weren't any fatalaties.
