Bad news for Joplin - tornado warning until 7:15pm, and radar shows tornado debris signature over far northeast OK heading northeast.

twitter.com...
Hopefully Joplin isn't hit by anything.. wasn't this about the time of year that they were hit by the EF5 a couple of years ago?

Don't ever be afraid to post.
it is known that solar activity has an effect on the atmosphere.
so you are making a reasonable suggestion.
I think the trouble is the complexity of all factors that makes predictions like you suggest, tough to make.
Perhaps we'll do better in the future.

I guess I am just wanting to blame someone or something. This is so tragic and anytime children are taken it absolutely breaks my heart. I just want it to make sense and it won't.

It just hit me, I remember our weather guy doing a whole dissertation online about the solar flares and then this and I remembered the same thing about Henryville.

I have learned a lot on here. I am coming out of my shell.

I've heard from my friends there, and everyone (thankfully) is safe. As happened here in Grapevine, Texas, the town has suffered a lot of damage but people are rushing in to help. One friend's husband is stuck in traffic near Oklahoma City, waiting till the situation clears up so he can continue driving.

The best way to help, for those of you who would like to, is to donate to the Red Cross. Here is a link where you can find information about donating to them online (and by phone)

When you see the death and destruction regardless of where it is, it has a way of putting things in perspective.

Whatever god or gods you pray to, fellow ATS'ers, please put them in your prayers tonight.

If you were very poor and could not afford a tornado shelter, what would you do? It is said that this tornado was so bad you really needed to be underground.

I was thinking that it would be good if people built themselves a sort of spider hole. This would be last resort. The best thing would be to leave the area.

But how would you build one? I would think it would be good to dig a hole as deep as your chest and wide enough to turn around and crouch in. Then get a heavy piece of board and make some sort of handle for it. You will be inside the hole crouching and holding the handle, pulling the board down over the hole. The board should be painted orange with markings indicating someone is inside the hole.
ou
You should not dig in unfamiliar areas and where there may be power lines, gas or water mains. It might not even be legal to dig but maybe you will do it anyway.

If I lived in a trailer park just now and knew that in a day or so a tornado might come, because of very bad weather in surrounding states, I would be trying to find out where I could seek shelter. If not I would build myself and people I loved their own spider hole.

How would you make a spider hole? I wouldn't want to be buried and I would want my spider hole to be visible. I'd want to be able to climb out and not be trapped inside. It would not be good to dig in some areas. If the hole fills with water that is ok if it isn't so bad. You can survive being muddy. You would not want the hole to collapse on you. You would not want ants to sting you while you were in the hole.

How would you make a shelter with little or no money?


I've been saying this for decades.. my sister went through a twister and survived and moved the next week.. ............

I just don't understand why people would stay in an area where this is a common occurrence ?? I'm serious.. plz educate me ~!

The presence of God in this event will be seen in the days to come. The stories of miracle survivals because it simply wasn't that person's time. To a believer, God knows our hour and day. To those without faith, you will not understand. That's what FAITH is. I would suggest you seek it.

One such miracle is a little 9 years named Caylee (sp?) Hawkins who is at a hospital in Oklahoma. If you happen to know her or her family, contact www.KFOR. She is at a hospital in the area, alone, with no family. She came from one of the elementary schools on a stretcher.

The whole central US can be affected by twisters. A large area to just abandon.

Let's keep it on topic to the developing story and latest information.
Theories and questions about causes or spiritual implications are better suited for other threads.

Because it's home.

I've lived here my whole life...not the OKC area but Oklahoma...it's home. I don't know what else to say? I don't want to start a dissertation about why we live in Oklahoma...to us if you live in California your crazy because of the earthquakes....or Florida because of the Hurricanes...or the Mississippi river area with all the floods...why do people live there? Because it's home.
