VIDEO: Tuscaloosa Tornado Nearing Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium

Tuscaloosa, Alabama and other parts of the state have been rocked by tornados and strong storms for much of Wednesday. The damage is already horrific -- at least five people have already lost their lives, many are without power, a hospital was struck and property damage is soaring. The storms are expected to continue throughout the night, and they could only be getting stronger.

Here's a video via @itsColeJohnson of one of the twisters passing very near Alabama Crimson Tide football's Bryant-Denny Stadium. That's an enormous facility, and while there's no telling exactly how close the tornado is to the building, it still gives some terrifying sense of scale.  

It doesn't sound like any major damage met the stadium. We can only hope the worst of the storms have already passed. The bad weather looks like it's going to spread across much of the Southeast, with most of it likely just missing Atlanta to the north.

Our Alabama community, Roll Bama Roll, is talking about the widespread disaster, sharing pictures and video.
