It missed us by a 1\2 mile, it was huge and sounded like a freight train. Just got back from walking where it did hit and it's hard to describe the devastation after seeing it first hand, entire neighborhoods and commercial businesses gone, Moore hospital is destroyed. Cable service at the house is down so some of you may know more details than I. Last I heard there were 37 deaths but I have no way to confirm that, also heard that some of the kids trapped had drowned
I do have pics but may be awhile before I can get them downloaded.

Just received some info that the death total was up to 55, can anyone confirm this?
. O geez...TY for that info. I've been wondering what happened to the people that were in the hospital. Haven't heard much about it?? Last I heard, 51 dead, still listening to the scanner....

Has anyone ever entertained the idea, that maybe this is all part of Agenda 21? I know we're all anticipating a big bang but, it's these little bangs that concerns me the most.

For what little it's worth, I give my heartfelt prayers to all of those involved. I have two nieces that live not far from that area and I am grateful they are ok.

My wife and I have a soft spot for the little ones. It brings a tear to my eye when they must leave earlier than we expect.

Bless them all.......

Current number is 51 dead.



 
[color=727272](I posted this in a different thread. Re-posting here.
I heard them mention this on the News. I had never heard of it before.
I think it is something that Everyone should know about.

[color=C9FFF4]After a disaster, letting your family and friends know that you are safe and well can bring your loved ones great peace of mind. This website is designed to help make that communication easier.

Register Yourself as “Safe and Well”
Click on the “List Myself as Safe and Well” button to register yourself on the site.

Search for Loved Ones
Concerned family and friends can search the list of those who have registered themselves as “safe and well” by clicking on the “Search Registrants” button. The results of a successful search will display a loved one’s first name, last name and a brief message.




Well, I just realized that the actual website address really sucks, but is still something people should know about. It is SAFEANDWELL.COMMUNITYOS

Logic dictates that I should be able to simply type in SAFEANDWELL.COM, but that doesn't work. It says nothing about the Red Cross, and tells me that the domain name may be for sale.

They were able to get the hospital cleared, they set up a temporary triage N side of the Warren theater and also at the community center on 4th St. This just really sucks and I've only seen a small part of the damaged areas.

I know this is a conspiracy site, but please....can we hold back the urge to look too deep in cases like this?

It was a tornado. Mother nature had her way....nothing more.

What do you mean about Agenda 21? Just curious about your comment. It's sad to imagine the damage done by the tornado. Sad.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the tornado.

It is so frightening that on a Monday afternoon, so many people lost their lives (51 and presumably more). I saw one video of a storm chaser being interviewed. He said he had never seen anything like it, in all his years of experience. Crazy.

I'm not so sure it was "all Mother Nature." What about HAARP?

Coburn Wants Tornado Disaster Aid to Be Offset By Emily Pierce Posted at 9:39 p.m. on May 20, 2013 0 The tornado damage near Oklahoma City is still being assessed and the death toll is expected to rise, but already Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., says he will insist that any federal disaster aid be paid for with cuts elsewhere. CQ Roll Call reporter Jennifer Scholtes wrote for CQ.com Monday evening that Coburn said he would “absolutely” demand offsets for any federal aid that Congress provides. Coburn added, Scholtes wrote, that it is too early to guess at a damage toll but that he knows for certain he will fight to make sure disaster funding that the federal government contributes is paid for. It’s a position he has taken repeatedly during his career when Congress debates emergency funding for disaster aid. A tornado or tornadoes that ripped through central Oklahoma have killed at least 51, according to the New York Times.

I thought those were only for the injured? And all the deceased were being taken from plaza to Moore??? So confusing.....gas leaks are getting worrisome....I also just heard, some kids were being taken to the church now...maybe to be reunited with parents that are still waiting?? TY for the info!!

Look, I'm all for a HAARP discussion and I too am concerned at what it can do.....but I live in the Midwest and spent quite a few years as a military brat at Fort Sill; Lawton, Ok.

I have seen plenty tornadoes dish out plenty of horrific tragedy on their own. I will go on record to say that HAARP was not involved. I live many, many states away and we had a tornado come through my area last night.

Was that HAARP? No....tis the season.
