Charter cable workers keep a close eye on an approaching storm as sirens sound signaling a possible tornado on Friday, March. 2, 2012, in Athens, Ala. Powerful storms stretching from the U.S. Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes in the north wrecked two small towns, killed at least three people and bred anxiety across a wide swath of the country in the second deadly tornado outbreak this week.
