I'm watching it right now, too. This one was MASSIVE. One to two miles wide and on the ground for 45 minutes. I've never seen that many cars and trucks thrown around by a tornado before. I'm afraid the death toll will be massive. My prayers go out to everyone in Moore.

 I grew up in tornado alley and to me it seems like to me that the tornadoes are getting more numerous and a lot more powerful,

My prayers are out for the ones in the path

That's sure not a record anyone wanted broken.

I'll second that olcowhand. Sad , sad day.  Recovery efforts continue at an elementary school, they just found a bunch of little ones, sadly deceased.....

Oh geez, that is the worst thing to hear.  Takes the wind out of your sails when you hear things like that.  I feel so bad for the children & their families.  I was hoping/praying not to hear of any more lives lost.

PRAYING for ALL involved !!

I know what 'ya mean, but this thing was estimated to be 2 1/4 miles wide, and on the ground for 20 miles.... Tons and tons of tragedy abounds from an event like this, they  are estimating  ~ 30 square miles of destruction. To put that in perspective, 30 square miles is about 19,000 acreas.....      Kinda hard to wrap one's head around really.
