Yea, it may have been a different one. Like you said it probably was a different one as from what I understand there were multiple lower intensity (EF-1 too EF-3's?) tornado's in the Edmond area.

From what I I am seeing from the dark line on the rocks...it took a couple feet...could be wrong...but the helicopter was the one that pointed it out...I thought the same thing as you though

If your from the tornado alley area, you learn to take storm warnings seriously. Everyone is glued to the boob-tube watching Gary England or your weatherman of choice. One thing we in Oklahoma can brag about (actually there are many things so don't get any ideas for jokes
) is the best severe weather alert system in the world...along with the best weathermen in the world. Of course in my humble opinion...but I'll wager I'm not embellishing much, if any. I really do believe these guy's and gal's are the best in the world.

That may be enough to drop the water level.....I'll bet we start getting reports of dead fish on peoples roofs or driveways before long.

lol, that's right...you would probably be further amazed at the money and resources these TV stations pour into their meteorology departments. It's a cut throat business trying to garner the severe weather market. All the channels advertise their latest and greatest storm tracking technology. Channel 9 (Gary England's channel) was the first station in the world to have a Doppler weather radar. Now they have gone well past that technology long ago...at a time when most weather departments in other states are just now getting Doppler. Channel 4 advertises their 4D weather radar...much higher resolution, and a 3 dimensional view of the super cells. Most in OKC can do a block by block call-out of the coming storms. Not to mention all the "boots on the ground" they have in the form of storm trackers/chasers.

No more storms developing and the ones in the Tulsa area have started to lose strength. But their saying tomorrow will be much like today was.

Which for me means all will be north and or east of me and my family.

One other thing I didn't mention. It is now 8:30 pm local time and all the OKC channels have been covering the storms non-stop with minimal commercial breaks since 3pm. I doubt there's many stations that have any type of contingency plan for that...at least outside of tornado alley.

You do realize that we are way, way below normal for tornado's right? Even severe weather as a whole.


Yeah, I seem to remember these kinds of storms happening back to back several times a year for, like, the last six decades. All the time.

Nothing out of the ordinary here, folks.

I hope the worst is over back there. And everyone stays safe.



Sorry for the bug splat in the middle lol


I can tell exactly what was going thru that bugs mind when he hit your windshield.


Heck of a saucer wasn't it fellows? A little on the fluff side but big enough to have eyebrows on top,
I just hope for everybody's sake Norman stays on it-- because anything over an F3 is mighty
serious business.

For the splatterite.. no big thing.
"Leave him. Bacteria got to eat, same as gnats." Sorry Josey...
I couldn't help it.

This is from KSN news in Wichita, Kansas this afternoon. Ive never seen panic like that from our weather teams...severe weather is a pretty common occurrence around here. Scary stuff this afternoon for the midwest.

Good God, I must have been asleep, this was only 50 miles from where i live, Just southeast of Tulsa, OK. These tornadoes occur so fast, and if you dont have at least a few minutes of fore warning, then it can lead to a really bad situation. Some of the Tornadoes get so powerful it can litterally take your breath out of your lungs. and make it hard to breathe. No joke

Really scary situation in Moore, southern OKC metroplex. Santa Fe ave. is crammed with cars and a tornado is approaching fast. Said most of the cars were students leaving West Moore High School. Gary England is telling people to abandon their car and seek shelter in a building.

There was a shot from the Helicopter showing a long line of cars in bumper to bumper traffic and the large wedge tornado behind them. Scary as hell

Just dropping by from another part of the world to wish you all in that area good luck and power to hang on. From what I'm seeing thanks to the live feeds you guys provided, it's pretty bad out there.

Stay safe everybody, and remember you can fix/repair/buy anything, but you can't replace a lost life.
