I just spent about an hour at a local storm shelter in Norman until the twisters moved on.

That  is a shot of one that passed just west of us.  Debris was falling from the sky in the parking lot of the Sooner Fashion Mall where we took shelter.

Will be updating….

  1. Kaye – we prayed for you and the rest of our Oklahoma friends. Watched the live stream from your local TV in OKC and Tulsa. I cannot fathom the heartbreak of losing a home in mere seconds. At least in a fire you get to sift through the ashes. Glad you are OK! — Pat

  2. The first video posted is supposedly one of the tornadoes from today in Oklahoma City. Problem is, the SAME video is tagged for a tornado in Zebulon NC May 25, 2010.

  3. Thanks for letting me know. Getting non-pro video has its pitfalls…will check it out.

  4. Thank you so much Patrick. Oklahoma has been my home for many years and every time this happens I find myself wishing for the good old days when all we had to worry about were Hurricanes. For all of you native Okies, hurricanes can be terrible but they go s-l-o-w!

  5. Right you were! It’s been removed. Thanks!

    Here is a link to damage from the tornado in Stillwater, I followed a path about 6 miles long from 56th and western to 12th and brush creek. Not sure if it was longer or not, since I ran out of daylight. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.202001656510227.49745.100001011831870
