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.

This is God's punishmen for the UK's moves towards gay marriage and gay clergy
is what I would say if I was a dick and didn't understand the gravity of the situation.
Stay safe, OK peeps.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

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.

OT:
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.

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.

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.

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.

I looked at the news about twenty minutes ago and it said 4 deaths. Still a ton of rubble and shit but four. EF4 or 5 tornado with multiple area leveled. 4 deaths.
