Oklahoma Getting Pounded Again


Recommended Posts

Such is life in Oklahoma during the month of May. The first spring that I lived there was a particularly bad year for tornado outbreaks. One night I was sitting in a friend's apartment and we had a news radio station on. It seemed that every couple of minutes, there was another one on the ground somewhere else.

 

When I lived in Moore, the tornado siren for the neighborhood was on a pole set in my back yard. That seems a bit ironic now, since that entire neighborhood was leveled with the last F4-5 that went through there. My friends who live about a mile and a half from there were missed by about three blocks.

 

Family in Norman says that they're OK, they had some heavy winds and rain but most of the dangerous stuff is north of them. Unfortunately, that means Moore - again. Will Rogers World Airport is west and slightly north of there. Since most tornadoes track southwest to northeast, hopefully Moore will miss tonight's outbreak.

From what I could tell most of the damage last night was in El Reno, which is west of Oklahoma City. Their main claim to fame is being the home of a federal correctional facility. The OKC airport was closed for a while due to a power outage, and they had to remove some debris from the runways and the tarmac before flights could resume.

I have a friend who is attending Oklahoma City University. She was at work at the hospital a little further north of town. Luckily I was able to communicate with her via facebook to learn that she was ok after the storms went though. Crazy amounts of rain though. Some places got over 6 inches of rain that night.
