At least one, maybe more tornado's in Moore/OKC area this evening. Not very powerful, at least by Moore tornado standards...lots of downed power lines, roofs blown off and from what I've seen on TV, lots of trash and debris strewn about. Where I am we had 40 mph straight line winds and gusts to 60 which we were well warned of all day. Pretty good cold front moving in. Last count for central OK is 30,000 folks without power.

Channel 9 in OKC has the best weather coverage in the world...in my opinion of course ;-)

About to get a storm where I am at. Moore should be turned into a grassland reserve or sonething, but they just keep building housing developments there!

Yeah, this occupied most of my evening. I'm well away from there, but the weird thing is that there are at least 3 tornado tracks overlapping a point on I-35 in Moore.

This one, that horrible one a few years ago, then the monster May 3rd. All of them for some reason cross over a point on the interstate in Moore... very odd, possibly unique. There may have even been a fourth one at night over that same bit of road.

Im in Tulsa, we decided to bunker down in a safe room when the sirens went off. However, I spent some time watching the ominous skies. When the large hail came down and the sky turned teal, the clouds began to spin and the wind became ferocious and I suddenly felt very, very insignificant.

Oddly, More often than not around the 4 states, the tornado's are drawn to I35. Use to live in SE KS and SW MO.. For some reason saw a lot of tornado's follow the highway.

Did my share of storm chasing, and dodging. Now i live in gods country, SW Montana, surrounded by mountains. Tornado's here are rare , if we are lucky the state gets one or two a year, and as low as the population is compared to size, most the time they happen out in the middle of no where.

Hope everyone survived. The rest sucks, but it can be replaced.


Odd note. The weirdest tornado i ever followed was one that was N. of Pittsburg Ks. It was following a paved road for a while, and i was about 1/2 mile behind watching, all of a sudden this gray twister, turned white, which puzzled me. as i drove down twords where it was, i saw why. There had been a big chicken farm, thousands of chickens. It had sucked the feathers off all the chickens. Was so funny seeing those birds walking around with no feathers.

We were hunkered down in our storm shelter too, but, I had to look out after surviving the May, 2013 F-5. I saw the spinning as it literally passed over my house right before it touched down about 300 yards from my property. I have pictures of the damage that my son and I got before they could shut the streets down.

And so we live though another one.

Well so far at least, the storms are still raging all around...

I feel bad for the people and their losses. But at what point do they call it day and move out of the area? I'm surprised they can even get homeowners insurance at this rate.


Now imagine what it feels like to have that powerful a twister level your home not once, but three times in under 15 years. That's the story of Moore, Oklahoma, a city of about 55,000 people that seems doomed to clockwork visits from immensely destructive thunderstorms.

I live in Moore and it brought back a dreary feeling for us. It missed us by a mile in 2013 as was the case with this one too. Fortunately It was not as powerful as the one in 2013 but it did do substantial damage thru out the state. I really hate these things.

You're my neighbor, I live in SW OKC at Western just below 119th, I can see West Moore high school from my office window. I'm glad you came through OK too.

Glad to see it wasn't another monster, and doubly glad to see ats Okies sounding off ok.

As far as the storms... I prefer oklahoma storms and all, some of the best most caring people I've ever met in oklahoma.

Thought I'd put up a couple of the images I captured in my phone:

This is looking to the Northwest over our west lot at 6:34PM, what you see behind the trees is the tornado that hit at 119th Street and Western Ave






This is a picture of the power pole at 119th and Western the above tornado messed up. I took this picture after things "calmed" down:

Hope everyone on ATS is safe in the area, and cam out unscathed.

I thought these things started in April!

Yes, we are neighbors. I'm in the 19th and I-35 area. The one last night went right between you and I. Living in tornado alley can sure put you on edge this time of year. Very thankful it wasn't any worse than what it was. The scary part is that tornado season is just starting, I'm hoping that's it for us.

That's a crazy pic you took of the tele pole still upright and unattached. After all these years it finally got the KOMA towers, surprised they made it as long as they did.

Have you driven by the KOMA (great call letters for a radio station by the way
) tower site and seen what's left? I wonder what state the rest of the other two towers ended up in?


I have a feeling this is just the beginning for us, we're in for a wild season. I'm fine with it being busy as long as it ends up like my wife pointed out, busy but with a bunch of little guys NOT a mile and a half wide F-% that destroys our city (again)...

I guess we'll see won't we?

I saw the TV pics of the towers, ouch. Will be going by there tomorrow to see my Mom which is at 134th and Western and I'll take a look. The towers are somewhat of a landmark. I saw that the Burger King didn't fair to well And Southgate School got hammered. Tis the season I reckon. Keeping fingers crossed that we're done with the twisters for the year.
