I don't know of anyone who hasn't heard of this.

It's been all over my local news, and I live in California.

 

Very frightening to watch. They have to worry about tornado's there, while we have to worry about earthquakes.

I'm still waiting for our "big one." The 1989 earthquake was terrifying. And that is the worst one we've had here, since I've been alive.

Im originally from oklahoma,that general area actually,and apart from this one, which I wasnt in the state for, the biggest one I witnessed was the May 3rd tornado, I think it was 1993-1995 I dont remember exactly...and they are saying this one was worse.

I live close to Moore but am out of town for awhile. This story is just insane though. A mile or two just seems unreal.

I had a feeling that this outcome would happen due to all the fluctuating temperatures of the last few months... Smiley Sad

Just some updated information about the tornado

It was upgraded to an EF5 and the death toll was dropped to 27 from 51 from what I heard from this morning due to them double counting the fatalities.

27 fatalities seems to be about average for a tornado of its scale but low compared to tornado fatalities from 50+ years ago.
