Monster supercells have broken out in the southeast this afternoon and evening with MANY tornado warnings and reports of very very large hail.
The radar signature above shows a classic hook echo and very high reflectivity return which basically means which the way the winds are blowing. The red and bright reds are moving away from the radar and the greens and blue are moving towards the radar.
This is a classic signature of a possible tornado, hence the tornado warning and I would not be suprised to see quite a bit of damage reports come out of these areas.

Below is another radar grab from a supercell that went directly through the small town of Selma Alabama. 4 inch hail was reported with this storm and there has been damage reported in the area as well.

People in these areas could be in for a long night!
