Prayers up for the victims and first responders.
One report is indicating at least 17 people are missing from the second floor of the motel.... thats just from the second floor. Search and rescue teams are are coming from all around the area.
Mine is a 7 minute loop
but that hotel is a shell of itself
Thanks for the update A tornado is near Broken Arrow right now.
Nothing on media.
Zoomed in - 2 rooms appear to be gone and significant parts of the roof - just on one side
Tornado ally, it’s a bitch. I was stationed in Altus OK for almost 4 years. Between the town and the base, we were directly hit by a tornado three out of four years I was there.
Looks to have been a bi-level motor court type of motel? Not seeing a second floor at all.
Google pic doesn’t show 2nd floor - current pics show 2nd floor (must have been built up since Google pic)
