  • were good here. we live on the north side of OKC so this wasnt near us. we live about a mile away from the stuff that hit last night. we've been loading up our old baby clothes to take to the donation drop offs cause its just really bad in Moore. two elementary schools were hit and luckily one school's kids are all accounted for but the other school still has trapped kids. its heartbreaking...

    thanks for thinking about us Okies, glad everyone is safe!

  • The huge tornado that went through Moore destroyed a farm 8 1/2 miles away from my house and my car is halfway under water. Other than having the shit scared out of us we're fine. They were saying get underground or get out of the way and me and dd were sitting in a closet. If it had been 8 miles to the north we probably wouldn't be here. I feel so bad for all of those families but I am so thankful that it missed us.

  • I'm ok, still can't reach some of my family in the moore/norman area but praying, also greatful I stayed at my sisters longer yesterday or I would have been right there when this one hit yesterday. it wiped out my FIL's neighbors house and went right over theirs.

  • We are under tornado watch until 10 tonight. It's windy here, but still sunny with fast moving clouds.
