The National Weather Service has just upgraded the May 31 El Reno, Union City tornado to an EF-5 with a width of 2.6 miles wide, making it the widest tornado ever documented.
The upgrade was based on information from a Dopler On Wheels (DOW) that measured low level winds of 296 miles per hour.
This tornado is double the width of the May 20 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

Nature can be an incredible force at times and nothing is quite as destructive in the immediate path as a tornado in full rage.

These tornadoes/this severe weather season has been a freak occurrence.
This doesn't happen as often as it may seem. I've lived here my whole life and have never even seen a tornado on the ground.
The apocalyptic storms you have seen on the news are very out of the ordinary, even for here. People carry on like they do in other parts of the country whether it be a hurricane, wildfire, earthquake, blizzard, flood, sinkhole or "super storm".

God's plans are confusing at times but when you have faith, you have peace of mind no matter what. So let'em rip and let the Earth cook or freeze or whatever.

Most of the houses that have been built in the last 20-30 years don't have them though, and putting them in can be very costly.
