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

Hurricanes get days advanced warning though, with tornadoes you get like 15 minutes tops.

Hurricane on a small island though, fuck that.

You get longer than 15 minutes. Tornado warnings can be in effect way longer than that.

I mean from when there is definitely one on the ground, tornado warnings are handed out pretty liberally. Point taken though.

Yeah Hurricanes at least give you notice, but Tornados are like "dont mind me, just going to EF5 out of no where and **** your whole day up"

Plus it's your house man... I would be so sad if I lost house after house year after year. I wonder how much the insurance premium is for houses out there.

My sister's friend lost everything. Her apartment was in Moore. Her horse made it at least.

That's messed up.



Though what worries me is I just started thinking about it and I have no clue what you should do in the event of a tornado. Like I have no idea what to do in any natural disaster. Good luck okie

I think year after year is a bit of an exaggeration, though tornadoes do seem to be more frequent lately in that area.

I'm sure in areas where it is frequent, there are some precautions to take for survival. As for me, all I know is that if an Earthquake happens, to stand in between a door frame to prevent anything from crushing you.

Save your ass in a tornado:

Central room, lowest floor (basement or shelter preferably), away from windows, crouch as low as possible and cover your head with your hands. If you aren't in a house get to a ditch or something low like that, away from trees or other objects that could fall. In the late 90's they ran this shit about overpasses being shelter from tornadoes because this one news team survived one in them, but they actually make the conditions much much worse because basically you are in a wind tunnel and the wind speed will be much higher there.

Phrasing on this is shit.

From when there is definitely one headed in your direction generally 15 minutes is what you get, luckily these storms today were in daylight as many tornado producing storms are dicks and pop up in the evening/early night. Tornado warnings mostly only warn that the conditions are suitable for the potential of a tornado in your area, 90% of the tornado warnings I've ever lived through didn't even produce a funnel cloud. But it is pretty awesome that we have developed a way to actually provide some kind of warning against this, with how unpredictable it is even knowing to be more attentive to the weather that day could and does save lives.

Yea, fifteen minutes seems like a decent number if no one else has been hit. Warning rarely produce anything but luckily most people here know when to move. A lot of people watch the storm while someone else relays the weather on a radio or TV.

^They were accounted for.

I'm seeing more rotations around Sulpher and Muskogee. I have a lot of friends in the Muskogee Tahlequah area.

This is what I was thinking. There's a difference between "oh there may be tornados today" and "One has touched down and it's a mile away from you"

With hurricanes and stuff you can watch them for over a week before they actually touch down. I know this past fall most beach towns in Jersey got evacuated before it hit. With tornados you don't have that luxury since it can basically be any day.

They've been digging 75 kids out of the rubble for a while. I'm not sure if all of them lived. At least 60 did, I know.

2 schools have been completely destroyed and it's estimated that 2 dozen little kids have been killed so far.

Muskogee did have several radar indicated tornadoes just south of it and right now east of Tahlequah is showing some.
