Prayers up for the victims, their families and the first responders.

Salvation Army & Red Cross, plus others providing shelter, food, water to tens-of-thousands displaced by yesterday's twister.

30 sq miles of damage, 2¼-mile wide debris ball. ½-wide funnel. Ground scrubbed clean in many areas. Debris from Moore deposited/coming down in Arkansas and Missouri.

N Texas Red Cross is worn out.

They were still working the tragedy in West Tx, then 16 tornadoes in N Texas.
Now this.

Today is shaping up for more of the same.

Yesterday's threads seem to have worn themselves out, so thanks for this one.

If they've been going at it all night, S/R crews must be about whooped by now.

Another 40 victims found overnight   :-((

And the weather map on News9 is showing a whole lot of magenta again this morning.

Best wishes, Oklahoma

Nor do I. FR is better used focusing on the disasters emanating from Washington.

It's incredible the scenes of the devastation..and when I woke up this morning to learn that some 7 kids had drowned in the storm shelter because a water main broke..it's hard to process, let alone know what to say or think.

Moore is almost no more..

"The films of the EF-5(?) from ..."

The latest official read is that it was a EF-4.

However, after seeing the Wichita EF-5 back in the early '90's, yeah, it's an EF-5.

NWS is due out later to determine whether EF4 or EF5, but from “scouring” of ground, weathercasters are calling it EF5.

Whatever it was, it was a bad one.

It is overwhelming.

We watched the Shawnee, OK tornado on Monday and that devastation. Then, Moore, OK, Tuesday.

There could be more tornado break-outs today.

U of Oklahoma opened a lot of their housing facilities to those who needed shelter.

Walmart Emergency Center was loading trucks and contacting ‘associates’ in impacted areas. WMT is good about providing major help during such crises.

News9 TV station in OKC area was taking donations yesterday (food, money, basics). They said the money would be handed to the Red Cross for ‘use’.

Thanks for posting this. I'm seeing the video on TV this morning, just learned about the 20 kids found dead at the one elementary school. Breaking my heart!

The width and strength of that tornado and the horriffic damage it caused looks alot like the Plainfield, IL tornado. That one was just down the road from where I live.

If anyone knows of a good recovery effort to donate to (NOT Red Cross - Local in OK if possible) please post that information on this thread. I have to leave for work but will be checking back during my lunch break.
