We have fans across the country & the world and, as was the case in Texas two days ago, Oklahomans are experiencing severe tonado activity that has destroyed two schools and entire neighborhoods. All we can do is offer our thoughts and prayers for their safety.

It's it hard to comprehend, especially at the schools that were destroyed.

I know.....its one thing to see it on the news but to be there and have that be your home, town, school...etc...
Nothing is left but rubble.....

It now seems they are in recovery mode at the schools. How tragic and, as you say, we are far removed from the reality of the heartbreak parents and other loved ones are beginning to experience.

I have family in okc. Fortunately the opposite end. (This is like the fourth major event in a row I know people right there, wtf?)

The warning system probably saved a thousand or more lives. For that size tornado going through a pretty heavily populated area under 100 or so lives lost is a testament to how good these systems are becoming.

Shocking to me though that the school had no type of shelter and the children had to leave and go to a nearby church.

Midwest is going to be getting hit by more and more severe weather. Have to start preparing.

Very few buildings/homes apparently do have storm shelters. Guess financially it doesn't make much sense with how rarely they are needed.

I guess you hear about tornados every year out in the "midwest". Areas that get hit I assume have been hit before. Poor assumption on my part.

Prayers go out to those affected. I heard the initial # of deaths has been lowered which is good but still a terrible event nonetheless.

Stay strong my fellow US brothers and sisters, you guys have had a difficult few months lately.
