OK in Oklahoma


Tuesday, May 21, 2013

It's been a very active past few days with tornadoes touching down just miles from where I live. I was actually taking a nap when the first tornado sirens went off on Sunday. My roommate rushed in to wake me up & we could see the funnel (which had not touched down yet) from our balcony. Since we are in a 2nd floor apartment, and we still had time before the tornado actually touched down, we chose to evacuate. Luckily the storm passed our residence before touching down and we had no damage at all.

Yesterday, I was heading out for a run when it began to hail, so I turned on the news to see what was going on & saw the doppler images and the meteorologists describing the formation and identifying the hook of the storm where there would likely be rotation and a funnel. A little later the watches became warnings and the warnings became more serious with people in the path of the storm being warned to take shelter underground as the storm would be very violent and destructive.

I could not imagine the destruction that the news cameras have captured thus far.

    Thanks everyone for your support and concern. The prayers really mean a lot. One of the local churches is organizing a cleanup tomorrow morning & I will be going if there are still volunteer spots.

    I am glad you are safe...praying for your state! Unfortunately, we (I'm in Texas) have to contend with these spring storms and can only pray that the worse is over....

    So happy to hear that you're okay! I have friends and family up there and everyone is also safe. Are you sure you don't want to come back to LA??? At least we can evacuate for Hurricanes! The thought of tornadoes just terrifies me. I will continue my prayers for Oklahoma! emoticon Take care and be safe.

    I'm so happy to hear you're alright!

It's so sad. I just wish the government had helped with disaster legislation. When it came through, it wasn't for OK but this proves it's going to hit everybody sometime. I hope everybody in need gets everything they need quickly, without delays. We've seen too much of that.
