We had a storm cell pass over town last night, but all we got was hale and rain.

The in laws live in Norman OK, but they are OK, most of the damage was east of there. When we visit they we drive right through the area that was hit hardest.

Ther was at least 2 people killed and dozens injuried. There were a couple of semis blown of the the overpass on I40 and on the hwy underneath.

There are more storms coming tonight.

We had some 60-70 mph winds come thru here around 7pm, there was some power outage, tree limbs down, etc. 

  I hope and pray for those families around Dale and Shawnee, OK that were in the path of that terrible storm.

There were a bunch of storms blew through here yesterday. It had been over a year since there had been a Tornado in Iowa(that's a record). But 6 went through last night.  I missed it by about 10 miles, all we got was some heavy wind and lots of rain.

Tonight it's coming again.

I second that!  Our nearest town had hail the size of golf balls yesterday, but that was all, no other severe stuff.

The tornado in Shawnee OK was an EF4.

That's really scary! Is it normal for them to be that intense this early in the year?

The EF5's in Moore OK in 1999 and the one in Joplin MO last year, were both in May.

We have hurricanes but are spared from Tornados. Hurricanes can be devastating as well but are always forecast well in advance, which is not the case with twisters.

It's kind of surreal watching the TV, reading these posts and seeing the sunshine outside.

 

Please, please, please everyone be careful & take all necessary precautions.

We are watching it on T.V. as I type, wondering what we are going to have tonight.
