Hearing this lady live on Fox is a throwback to when I lived in Texas. Hearing "do what?" again is awesome lol.


This is sad, though. She's finding things in her home she thought might be lost forever while at the same time delivering news on how cars were thrown on top of the children at the school.

I'm a little concerned for my aunt in Dallas. They just barely missed the last tornado, and this one is heading that way.

Shit sucks man. Although this

As the storm hit, winds were moving up to 302 mph.

seems a bit odd as that would tie it with the previous wind speed record, is that page sourced any?

Heh, I'm looking out the window as I type this, ready to spring into my hidey-hole at a moment's notice.

Thankfully (well... For me) Broken Arrow doesn't get much attention - not even from tornadoes. (Quite broken up hearing about Moore, though.)

Although, there are some funky clouds out there... Oh boy.

Along with earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. ...yes.

Man, some of those pictures I've seen...whole neighborhoods just gone. Nothing but dirt patches where all the houses were.

You are where stuff is still happening, the current cell just south of you in Muskogee is probably producing a tornado right now according to radar, but luckily it doesn't appear to be going anywhere near you. If you aren't already I would suggest turning to the local weather on tv or radio right now.

Ah ok. Because 302 mph is like super fucking crazy EF5 territory man. Technically the winds only have to be over 200 mph to be an EF5.

They did say up to 200mph though so yeah, it's likely an EF5

I helped my friend clean out his storm cellar. His friend called him and asked if he wanted to go to Moore to help out. Both of them are trained first responders so my friend called his brother who's trained as well. So all three of them are headed to Moore soon to help move debris and find people.


Just going to point out that Moore is three hours away from here. Tomorrow is my friend's two year anniversary with his wife.

From the damage signatures alone it is at least an EF4, official ratings should trickle in tonight I would imagine

How optimistic can you be to continue living in flat land areas. This is scary as shit. I feel like it's scarier than any natural disaster, other than Tsunamis.

I imagine hurricanes to be worse. Longer durations, wider spread, greater damage bringing in all the water from the shore.

It's like a tornado and tsunami had an obese baby.


But in the sense of "in the moment" scary, you're probably right.

Shit gets destroyed but people learn how to survive. Last count I saw was 4 fatalities. It's tragic but 4 is extremely low considering the damage it did.

Yesterday we had the tornado sirens go off twice, that sound they make is really unnerving. It is a million times worse when the electricity goes out and you don't have a basement though, I have no idea why the fuck every single home is not required to have a shelter/basement in this area.

So glad I don't have to worry about tsunamis though, I remember watching that last big Japanese one happen live and that shit is crazy.
