  • Tornado delays SEC basketball tourney

    Since I cannot watch the IU game I was watching the SEC tourney game between in Atlanta between Alabama and Mississippi State when sudeenly loud sound in dome and damage to roof of Georgia Dome and catwalk swaying

    Report is of a tornado warning in downtown Atlanta at that time.

    Definite damage to some of dome, debris in dome from it and could see the roof flapping during that time.

    Pretty wild, fans started to get into walk ways, players sent to lockerrooms. Game has been delayed for at least half hour as they check the building for damage.

    Game is in overtime. Say they hope to get started again soon.

    Looks like there is some damage to the outside of the GA Dome as well. I've been in that building several times for the SEC Championship Football game and I can't believe ii didn't tear that roof.

      Delay was 63 minutes

      There has been film outside the dome, in the area, and there is damage outside and looks like the dome has suffered more external damage. Photos may be interesting when sun comes up.

          UK-UGa game delayed until tomorrow! That would suck to have to play 2 games in 1 day.

              Why, it worked for years until loser ISHAA Effed up a perfect system.

              Why not just give everyone a trophy now...

              What irks me (maybe its too soon for the truth), DW was a 16-oval WIN specialist, yet the vast majority those boohooing for him, hardcarders & fans, alike are the same ones trying to kill anything with more than 9 deg banking & 4 corners, where Dan ultimately made his home...

                Why? Because only the winner of the UK/UGa game would have to play twice. Their opponent wouldn't have.

                    Rest of tournament moved to Georgia Tech. Tickets limited to family, cheerleaders, pep bands, and conference gurus.

                        They agreed to do it - as if they had another choice.

                        They are under tornado watch again today also.

                          I agree its unfair. TV probably dictated things here. The thing to do would have been to play the UK/UGA game today, then play both semi-finals on Sunday morning, and the championship as late as possible to still get things done before the brackets are released.

                            Yep, it's all due to TV, as usual.
                            Have a very blessed day!
