Obama’s administration wants to add one more box.

It’s a casket...

I saw a news report where they were looking for kids in rubble. They had mentioned that the older grade kids
had left the school earlier but the younger ones stayed at the school. I thought that was kind of odd that they did not all leave. Not sure if this is the same school or not.

It is unfortunate that you are probably very correct that the ghouls will come out to play.

Drowned? I’m sorry, but I don’t understand. Was there that much rain?

It’s the same thing in S Texas. We had a home in San Antonio, under 6 inches of top soil is solid bedrock. No basement possible.

It depends on where you are and how far you are from a tornado.
Rule of thumb is ? if you don't see it going to the left or right and seems to be standing still ? it's coming right at you.

I know this is no time for politics, but after this week I have to wonder if the Feds are going to factor in past activities when they decide who gets what disaster relief.

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election. Will that affect his decisions? We'll see,

Prayers up for the victims and their families.

Why can’t there be ‘tornado days’ where there is no school (like a snow day?). They knew there were going to be more tornadoes today in the area.
Prayers for all the families...

That is a very good question. It’s similar to why don’t they put seat belts on school buses?

They should not have had school today since the weather was certainly going to be an issue. I wonder how many parents kept their kids home.

Just awful. If my Mom didn’t live there and several friends I’d turn the TV off.

And they got two more days of this coming at them.

I can’t take the story about the kids. The local reporter was trying to cover the story and he just couldn’t finish before breaking down and crying.

I did too.

It’s just that drowning is unexpected. And, yes, it does make a difference. Don’t sound like Hillary. I just wonder how a tornado can drown children in an elementary school.

Haven’t there already been instances of red states having trouble getting disaster declarations from this White House?

Can you believe what this democrat has said about the storms, “While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming. Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters. “So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate...”

In Kansas where we lived it was in the hallway, schools didnt have basements except the HS which was built into a hill. The area we lived in north of the river basements were fine because of the elevation above the water table south you couldnt for the opposite reason.

Flash flooding is always a problem during thunderstorms. I live less than 1/4 mile away from where one or two cars will get swept away every 5 years or so, when idiots drive around a barricade.

The problem with flat-land is that the lower lying spots can fill up with water VERY fast.
