    Not much time for residents to react, either. I read that there was something like 16 minutes between the initial warning and the tornado. Those poor people.:csad:

    I am gut-wretchingly terrified of tornadoes. This does nothing to help.

    Thoughts go out to those families affected.

    Consider how much we messed with the planet, it's going get worst

    Wouldn't surprised me if we see a F6 or higher in the future

    Heard on the news about those kids drowning in the basement of the school, that's really messed up

    Eh the Earth has dealt with worse weather before, prior to us screwing things up. The only difference being people werent there to catalog and report on it 24/7.

    Situations like this are why im thankful i live where i do. I couldnt deal with this type of stuff. I dont know how ppl who live in high risk areas like that do it. Wicked props to them

    I have no doubt this will be categorized as an EF5. I can't even imagine what an EF6 would be like, because this was beyond terrible.

    The town of Moore, Oklahoma already had a F5 tornado back in 1999 that hit 318 mph, the fastest wind ever recorded.

    It's the width that made this one more devastating though.

    Does anyone know how wide the 1999 tornado was?

    Destroyed an elementary school, and may have killed more than 30 kids. Unbelievable. :csad:

    This is terrible. Moore is the same town that was hit by the most powerful tornado ever recorded in 1999.

    Absolutely unbelievable. Typically, with tornadoes, they tell you to seek shelter in a basement or, if one isn't available, to stay in the center of whatever structure you're in and stay away from windows. With storms like these, however, they're increasingly not mincing words, telling people who cannot get underground to get out of the way or risk dying. It's just awful.

    I grew up with an intense phobia of tornadoes. This is terrifying and sad. My condolences to everyone affected.

    I read that there were people found in a freezer inside a 7-11. But the whole building was destroyed, so they didn't make it.

    I can't even imagine it.

    Oh geez. :(

    Just looking at the pics of the tornado is scary enough. I can't imagine living over there and experiencing all of that. Hell, I can barely stand hurricane season down here so just seeing that...I mean, wow. No comparison obviously, but all those people up in OK, bless them.
