So God supports abortion because he thinks children dying is “righteous judgement” for America? Aborted kids are just collateral damage? That’s what it sounds like you saying.

I think I would have evacuated the area entirely if this was what was in the forecast for a second day....

well i would hope schools were built with some reinforced areas especially in tornado alley

about all i know about tornadoes is my sister told me she was driving into town one day and all these cars were pulling over and people were headed indoors. she was new to the area and didn’t understand then she looked out her side window and a tornado was coming at her not too far away. she said she peed her pants literally and headed for the nearest building she had seen other people headed for.

Funny you should mention that...Bill Clinton tried to shut down the NWS Storm Prediction Center, based in Norman, OK, in an effort to “save money.” The SPC issues tornado watches for the nation and the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) conducts research into severe weather. Both organizations were saved from closing by a Congressman named J.C. Watts.

So God killed those children today because He’s angry that people in this country don’t pray enough and have sinful lifestyles? Great outlook. As someone prior to me asked- are you a WBC member?

This is “mother nature” for lack of a better term. Has nothing to do with “herd mentality” Nothing rational about where a Tstorm goes. At least to till we get better.

You would have to evacuate the state.

I grew up in tornado country, had them every year. You pretty much accept them and pay attention in the summer. Storms this strong are rare, thankfully.

No, I’m saying you and I could be collateral damage for the judgement that is coming to America because of the blood shed here. To be blunt, I’m afraid of getting caught in the crossfire. Darn. I wish I hadn’t started this.

My first experience with that about 4 yrs ago in Pryor OK visiting my aunt. On the way intro town there is a sign....TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.....I said huh? Had to ask WTH? Cousin said it is a flash flood area or the creek runs over there or something like that, anyway water real fast and they have had people try to drive through it and drown. Saw some pretty funny road signs in that area.

My God, those poor parents.

You folks in tornado country have all my prayers. What a frightening situation, I’m not sure I can even imagine. I’ve had violent t-storms hit when I was working outside in New Mexico, but the worry was mostly lightning, not tornadoes.

B4Ranch is a great freeper....I think all she means is that we collectively should be less sinful and more prayerful...if only to strengthen ourselves spiritually for such horrible events...

Just responding to a person’s tagline. Actually, I didn’t even realize it was this thread. No problem...

The response was not intended to be tied in to this incident. It’s unfortunate that it probably looked like it.

When I lived in Canada I learned that central Alberta is one of the worst areas of North America for tornadoes. One spring around this time of year a tornado swept through a campground (it was vacant, fortunately) and tossed a bunch of vacation trailers into Pine Lake.

I was praying earlier today to keep the people in that area of the country safe, this is terrible and there are more unsafe days to come.
