Wait a minute, just last week the “expert” on the Climate Change Channel was telling us the lack of tornados was due to polar ice cap melting.

That storm to the south of OKC heading towards Purcell is rotating way up there in height.

That one could turn out a long duration event...!

“Could be a May 3rd Event”.

Everyone in Moore knows what that means.

Moore got nailed by the 1999 tornado. This one looks almost as bad - massive hook echo, possible multiple vortex:

God Bless our neighbors to the north in Oklahoma, great people, always enjoy visiting the state, but man, it is cursed with these tornadoes.

Sure we get our share in Texas, but not like they get it.

I don’t think I have ever seen a tornado as evident as in that radar loop. Almost like watch the path of hurricane.

I’m in Texas, too, and know this could be us. Numerous times I end up in the first floor bathroom with my Yorkie when I get an automated call from the city.

Comment I saw is that massive amounts of debris are what is causing the rotation to be so evident.
