That’s West Moore High School, I hope they were spared, but it may be heading now straight for Moore High School.

This thing could cause more fatalities than the 1999 Moore tornado. Moore had about an hour’s warning for that one. This one blew up right on the edge of SW OKC.

when they are in my area, i go in downstairs bathroom with cushions, backpack with water/food for three days, and my Yorkie and I have a motocycle helmet in the cabinet below the sink in there.

More people die from head wounds than anythig else in a tornado. Several times I have put that on.

I assume the lake has a lot of homes built adjacent?
Then a lot of streets northwest of that too on map.

any lake anywhere almost is jammed with houses.

this tornado could be me in texas and this one scares me to death. I think many will be killed.

One of the ones killed in this last Texas one last week, had the body ripped open with the intestines on the road.

this one is so bad today.

Basements are not common at all. I hope a lot of folks added shelters after 1999.

We’ve got basements in Michigan. Besides, lake Michigan really knocks the power out of storms.

Basements don’t (usually) work in Oklahoma because of the clay soil and high water table. Most houses don’t have one.
