"Mile wide" Tornado touches down in Oklahoma

Recommended Posts

there were twisters predicted for a lot of last night and into today. wondering why anyone would send their kids to school, but that's 20/20 hindsight now.


if they were under tornado watch or warning, i would have been inclined to keep my kid at home with me, or maybe even leave town.


2.5 miles wide is just insane. not sure there's much of a defense you can put up against something like that.

Once the warning was issued, the tornado touched down 8 minutes later according to CNN's coverage. It just assembled so quickly.


I don't think this is any lack of prevention, there isn't much you can do in 8 minutes against mother nature. A 2 mile wide tornado is going to rip anything in its path.



8 minutes though.  For a tornado, that's a good amount of time for a warning.  So at least there is hope that people were able to at least get in a secure location.
