Got storms down by OKC. Possible tornadoes in them. If they continue NE, they'll be here later tonight. Just keeping an eye on things!

I hope that you and your neighbors stay safe. We average one damaging tornado per decade in our state and that is enough.

 

Years ago when I worked for a company out of Des Moines, I tried to persuade people to build their houses with a central room that was reinforced concrete. It would protect people inside it and provide a living area while rebuilding. Nobody listened.

 

Good Luck, Rick

We don't get those, just snow storms. You can have the tornados. Noel

At least they don't cover the whole area like your snowstorms do! :D

Lived in Tulsa for a short while back in 76. Ok has more tornados per square mile than anyplace in the world. Could drive thru town and look for blocks where everything was flattened.

There were a couple small tornadoes around here but nothing to bad, although the wind has been blowing around 35mph all day and it's picked up tonight with a little bit of rain. We got 2 1/2 inches of rain last night and it's going to rain more.

 

Hope everyone is safe from the storms!

Sorry Kenny. Seriously; my prayers go out to you and others affected by storms. I am hoping for rain as it is very dry now. We basically had no snow the winter months.

You're not alone, Kenny.

 

In Bützow, a small town near Rostock (Baltic Sea), a tornado destroyed many houses and cars aso - I've never heard before from such strong tornados here in D.
