^ I believe he is, he's been posting regularly in our mafia game and yesterday's storms didn't hit him he said.

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

Yea, I'm watching a radar. Tahlequah is lucky and avoids a lot of tornadoes. Hopefully that keeps up.

Nothing looked like it directly hit either, so I would imagine everything is ok really. Maybe hail or wind gust damage at worst I'd say.

Edit: they are no longer showing those two indicated ones east of Tahlequah
In my heart I'm with you

Guess your Rent-A-Swag franchise will have to wait.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes

Hurricanes aren't even so bad unless you live near water. I'd find a tornado much more threatening.

Hurricanes cause pretty severe destruction but you have a significant amount of time to not be an idiot and drive away. Tornadoes are much more quick acting and all you got for safety is a hole in the ground.

Death toll at 51 now.

I'm watching the live coverage as I type and have been since the aerial footage of the tornado plowing through the field was live streamed. They're saying 55 dead and the death toll may rise, along with it being confirmed as an EF5 tornado.

Sometimes this makes me so furious.


Even if prayer did something, you can't direct it. Praying after a disaster is fucking useless. People can pray if they want but I'll be donating at least $100, possibly $200 depending on my paycheck. That buys supplies. That keeps people warm and fed.

And I'll be donating to a fund that benefits these people, not the Red Cross.

its a hashtag bro, but prayer is (to me) not useless IMO but difference of opinion, whatever but good on you for donating resources to the people in need.

It's just a way for people to broadcast their sympathies.

I know, but a lot of people see that as actually helping. Contributing.


Expressing sympathy is the human thing to do and I'm glad to see it but when I see all that happened and hear about people who have died I'm so spiteful toward these praying people. I know plenty of religious people who will pray and that's what they do, fine. Those are also people who will donate or volunteer if they're able (some aren't). It's the people that see praying as doing their part. I've seen so much with this and the shootings recently. It's getting to me.


I also got to see a video of the tornado barreling down on the high school where I had state marching band contests. I have very fond memories of that place.

^In terms of specific areas, prayer is useless. You can't direct it. If there is a god who listens to prayer, they don't directly fulfill them nor is it immediate. I hate the hashtag thing. Prayer is supposed to be personal to your relationship with your god. The hashtag thing is a way for people to feel they've accomplished something when they've done nothing different than every other day.

Despite my actual disdain for it, I'm not trying to knock you for praying. That's your thing. I'm angry at the people who use it as a substitute for contributing in a tangible manner. A guaranteed manner. That's what people need. They need support and they need it now. If you want to pray then pray while you donate or volunteer.

You aren't. A lot of people are genuine, but a lot of others are posting #PrayForX for their own benefit, to seem as if they're doing something to help.

This is saying the the rescue of the 24 children trapped in the school "has become a recovery, as they are believed to be deceased"

The National Guard has been called in to deal with looters, as people have already been spotted stealing from sites throughout the damaged areas.

I'm texting the $10 dollar donation thing as I type. The church I attend will take up an offering for the people affected by the tornado along with sending a team to help with whatever they can do to assist in recovery efforts and I'm gonna do my best to become apart of that team, BTW it is a little over an 8 hour drive to Moore from where I live.

It's only three from here but I have work and I'm not very strong. Good on your church for actually doing something to make a difference, and you as well.

At this point I think people would react with shock and panic if the WBC expressed sympathy for any deaths.
