Massive tornado outbreak strikes Oklahoma City metro area, dozens dead

http://abcnews.go.com/m/story?id=19219367

What a massive storm this was today. Reports are that it was over 2 miles wide. The saddest part is that the elementary school was just flattened and there are children still unaccounted for. The current death toll is 37, hundreds are injured, and I'm sure those numbers are only going to continue to rise.

The insane part is that this very same area was struck by an even bigger twister in 1999.

Similar event in Joplin MO two years ago, right around the exact same time. Always tragic.

Tornadoes are pretty much the scariest thing in the world to me.

I'll be in Oklahoma in a few weeks. It's sad to watch on TV, very sad.

Death toll up to 51 now, including 7 elementary-school-age children.

Growing up and living my whole life in the Midwest, tornadoes have always terrified me. My family used to watch funnel clouds pass outside while I hid in the basement. Still to this day, I panic when the Doppler lights up. Thoughts are with the survivors and those who lost loved ones. So, so sad.

It might have been funnier f you said see? Guns don't kill people, tornadoes kill people!

Might.


Insensitivity aside, it's a pretty shitty situation.

They look amazing when someone catches them on video, but the destruction they cause is unbelievable. And a whole school was destroyed.

You can donate $10 to the Red Cross by sending a text to 909 99 that reads REDCROSS.

How awful.

I fathom to guess that it will it be disclosed in time that Moore will be revealed to be one of the poorer/ disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Oklahoma city, and always a "Tornado risk"

You would guess wrong. While not especially affluent, Moore is definitely not one of the poorer/disadvantaged areas in the OKC metro.
