Photo Gallery: Tornado prediction: Feb. 23, 2012 4/14

FILE - In this Jan. 24, 2012, file photo, people continue the process of cleaning up tornado debris in Center Point, Ala. Storm chasers are watching the Southeast as a nasty storm brews with the potential to spin off a batch of tornadoes. Tornado season is just about here and forecasters believe twisters are possible Thursday and Friday. But in reality, it got an early and deadly start in late January when two people were killed by separate twisters in Alabama. The season usually starts in March and then ramps up for the next couple of months, but forecasting tornado seasons is even more imprecise than predicting hurricane seasons.
