Massive Tornado Destroys Parts Of Moore Oklahoma

This tornadic storm went just south of me. I was in my tornado shelter! But the damage down around Moore and westward has been catastrophic. I've been to the Moore Warren theater several times and it really got hit. Live coverage available on the following outlets -

So far I've not heard of any fatalities, but there will be some.:( The damage from this storm might be some of the worst in history. Looks like young kids may have lost their lives too. Nobody has said it, but I'm getting that impression.

Answer: solar activity ... For several days preceding this tragedy, FOUR X-class solar flares erupted.

My bro Chaz lives in Moore!!!

One of my best friends in life is a guy named Carey. I gave him the nickname Chaz back in 1991 when we both lived in TX. He moved to Moore OK and has been there, since. For some stupid damn reason, I cannot find his phone numbers (cell or home) to find out if he is okay. Dammit!!! Just send him a FB msg. Gawd, I hope he is okay. If something happened to him or one of his kids, it would splinter my heart!

Given that cell service is so

Given that cell service is so overloaded down here, Facebook might be your best bet.

Guess the National Weather

Guess the National Weather Service knows their sh. Updated this post to reflect the RESULTS of a huge tornado going through populated areas.

Just another May down here

The bugs are out and the tornados are spinning. I find it interesting that the weather can kill me. It's humbling, however it is still probably safer than having nyc police around. It's best to ride it out with a good radar. Intellicast.com's radar is the best.

Yeah, pretty rough day! Thing

Yeah, pretty rough day! Thing is it might all repeat in the same/similar areas tomorrow.

Oklahomans are used to these

Oklahomans are used to these events. Just buy a portable, battery-powered weather radio with an alert capability. If one stays alert to the weather, Oklahoma is probably one of the safer states in which to live as the weather forecasting is generally among the best in the world. I knew that April would likely appear in May on the southern plains. The 2013 tornado season is about a month behind schedule.

One last piece of advice: don't, i.e. do NOT, try to outrun the damn things in a car. If in a mobile home, leave it for cover in a ditch. Most importantly, pray!
