Talk:Tuscaloosa Tornado of April 2011
This page should not be speedy deleted because it is an actual topic on a record breaking tornado that happened yesterday. There is not a page on this topic yet.
Not having it on wikipedia wont change the past. I understand the respect for those who lost their lives and are permanently affected, but I find it more disrespectful to completely ignore it and now allow this page to exist.
This page should not be speedy deleted because 1) This event has garnered ongoing national news media coverage, and 2) the December 2000 Tuscaloosa tornado has its own page. --Soonercary (talk) 04:43, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
- Along those lines, I would suggest renaming the article to 'April 2011 Tuscaloosa tornado' to stay consistent with the article naming convention that has already been settled upon. Soonercary (talk) 04:47, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
I've never done this before, but: I live in Tuscaloosa. I've lived in Central Texas, too, the heart of tornado alley. I've never seen a storm like this before. given the potential record status of the storm, the horrific damage and death toll, and the sheer impact it had on everything in its path, I MUST contest the deletion of this page. This storm has made, and will continue to make, history. Edit it if you must, but deletion seems an abysmal idea, especially considering the nearly absurd prevalence of minor pages already in existence.
