OT Tornado in Moore (Oklahoma City) today. Worst tornado outbreak in US history.

http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2013/05/20/oklahoma-braces-for-severe-storms/

I have several family members in the OKC area. So far everyone . I saw the '99 tornado in the same area and was stunned by the destruction. My niece and family lost their home and livestock in that one. This one is supposed to be bigger. Hope all of the Eggheads in the Moore area are safe and sound.

    Don't know yet how the house is. I think the tornado missed the house, but not sure about debris.
    Persistence and determination are omnipotent!

    @Firemedic183 My niece says the tornados left a path a mile wide. No comms working in Moore. If you need someone to check your house out, let me know.

    I was watching the live video feed of it.. It was a huge tornado.. I looked away for a bit and came back and it was MASSIVE.. There were powerline pops a good 1/2 mile away from the base of it.  Hopefully the loss of life is minimal..

    Damn twister messing with my people in OK.  Thanks for checking on me and mine. I hope everyone out there is safe. This is making me sick. Still waiting to hear from some family and friends.
    BOOMER!

    Good to hear from the OK folks who have checked in that all is good (well relatively speaking I guess). Hope the check-ins for others with family in the area continue to bear good news.

    Thoughts and prayers to all who have had to deal with the wrath.  And more importantly to those who have  had to face the reality of what nature has wrought.
