Hope no-one from here was in it.

Thoughts and prayers to all who were.

Indeed, a lot of the bad stuff was around Oklahoma City. Glenpool is nearby OKC. Dennis B, are you alright?

Glenpool is outside Tulsa, so I too hope Dennis is OK. Tornadoes have no sat-nav.

I remember being upset at losing a roof tile in strong wind - no other damage. Even if I multiply that by 10,000% I doubt it comes anywhere near what those people are suffering.

Thoughts are with you all.

I looked at photos of the devastation on The Mail online, we get our share of flooding and storm damage in the UK but not on a scale like in Oklahoma.

I'm OK,

Glenpool is located 14 miles south of Tulsa. We got and are still getting lots of high wind, lightning, and rain. The thing that gets to my neck of the woods is very large hail stones and broken tree branches.

Pray for those that have lost loved ones in this tragedy. Homes can be rebuilt, but the loss of a family members is devastating....a wound that never heals.

Especially when it is a child... Crying or Very sad

DennisB and I, along with a few other members, live in the notorious "Tornado Alley" in the US, but every region, here and abroad, experiences some sort of natural disaster. It is how we help each other after such disasters that define us as human.

It is hard to believe how big that tornado was. I remember in Illinois getting tornadoes but not that big. I wish the best for those in the area's that were hit and glad that those on this site stay safe.

The damn things seem to be getting bigger and deadlier. It was almost exactly two years ago (May 22, 2011) That a monster EF5 tornado struck Joplin, Missouri, about 35 miles from where I live, and destroyed 8,000 homes, killed 162 people, injured 1,100 and did almost 3 billion dollars in damages. Sad

A couple of decades ago, it was rare to hear of such monstrosities. Joplin, Mo. & Moore, Ok. are just two of the worst in the last couple of years. There have been dozens - and the 2013 tornado season is just beginning.

I grew up 7 miles from Moore in north Norman, Okla. Still have family there. I heard from them all and all is okay with them.
Prayers for the families that have lost EVERYTHING, including and especially loved ones.
