Posted on 05/20/2013 12:46:11 PM PDT by dirtboy
Tornado warnings up in Oklahoma. Watches in TX, OK, KS, MO, far NW Arkansas.
CNN says no underground shelter at school so that doesn’t sound very promising based on the video.
New tornado just formed north of Meeker, growing.
I’m not condemning you. I’ll buy you a beer, too.
Yes, it takes more guts to apologize.
Are they in Moore Luv?
You’re in my prayers. Stay safe.
Didn’t get his name. He represents the area.
Quick search turns up Tom Cole, R, OK
Maybe he meant that this is an unusually severe storm? It sounds as if it is, and it may not be over.
It makes people feel better and less frightened to proclaim natural disasters as unusual. This also leads to the various impulses to blame them on global warming, “God’s punishment” etc.
When Southern California is devastated by an M7.5+ earthquake, killing thousands of people, from a geological perspective, it will have been completely routine.
Some do, older ones do not. Plenty of drills though.
Exactly. I texted after our area was struck and finally got through. Keep trying.
LIVE VIDEO FROM OKLAHOMA CITY:
Nothing here in Dallas Ft Worth area yet. Weather guy says if we get hit it will be later this evening.
Lance just reported that as many as 75 children may be trapped in one of the schools.
It was fairly easy to see this spring was going to be violent this year. We are in a decade long ocean driven cooling cycle due to the low solar activity from the previous sun cycle. However right now we have the second peak of the current solar maximum occurring. So you have solar energy being input into a long cooling trend. The violent activity was delayed because the cooling was so strong and it was just too cool for tornado formation. Now it is not. Multiple fatalities in Moore. They are not counting.
75 children trapped in debris at school.
Oh thank God LuvW!! So glad you heard from them!
