MSNBC just broke into regular programming with coverage of a tornado heading toward a mall in eastern OK. Shawnee I believe.
 
2013-05-19 07:46:39 PM  
Wow heading right for Walmart and Lowes in Shawnee Mall. Thats a huge storm
 
2013-05-19 07:46:54 PM  

dletter: Shawnee, OK is about 30k, so, a decent size town.

The news 4 stream is announcing it is heading straight towards the "Shawnee Mall", about a 1/4-1/2 mile wide.   

Hope they have a good underground basement/parking garage there.


If they're shopping on the Sabbath, it is God's will.
 
2013-05-19 07:47:41 PM  
God really has it in for that mall.
 
2013-05-19 07:47:51 PM  
Christ... this is just worst case... Well, would be worse if it was dark.

mr intrepid: I remember we were traveling across country and stopped in Kansas for the night.  Eating dinner at a restaurant during a torrential downpour, we heard a tornado warning on the radio.  Waitress told us to pay it no mind.
A few minutes later, the wind kicked up and started going HORIZONTAL.

Got real quiet in there.


Driving home from our honeymoon through Kansas, I looked to the south and jinxed us with the words: "if those clouds got organized, it could get interesting." They did, and it was.  It went from 103 to 67 degrees in about 12 miles.  We pulled over to wait out the rain, and abandoned ship when the wind started lifting our car and inch or two. We huddled in the ditch with the weather radio, listening to the report that the worst of the storm was 10 miles west of Solomon, KS. The only sign we could see was Solomon 10.

When it all passed, we got back in the car and drove to the nearest convenience store. They looked at us funny because we were wet, shivering and buying hot chocolate. It was 103 again.  Here it is a while later...

Cantore screams at me to look at the debris, but all I see is grey.

The only upside is that most mall stores are going to close around 6:00 on Sunday, and those that are open are going to be emptying out around this time.  If this was Saturday at around 2:00 it would be a lot worse....

Wow debris falling in Hallet from Carney, that's a good 30 miles as the crow flies.
 
2013-05-19 07:50:32 PM  
As a tornado, I am getting a kick out of these responses.
 
2013-05-19 07:51:24 PM  
I just want to repeat, Reed Timmer and Jim Cantore are in the same vehicle, that pretty guaranteeing violent tornadoes today.

A second tornado forming now in Shawnee.

Mayfest (Tulsa art festival thing) was also prematurely ended today due to the forecasts.
I imagine any complaints people had from it are gone by now.

Tornadoes r nothing. Try living in a lake effect belt. That can truly be difficult in your day to day life

It's Kansas, the religitards that live there should just pray the tornado away.

I don't want to get too vulgar, but listening to The Weather Channel, I think Jim Cantore has an erection.
either that or he is broadcasting live from a massage parlor

The chances of being hit by a tornado are soooooooooo small that 99.9999999999999999999% of the time nothing is disrupted.

Great, as if there wasn't already enough talk now about driving while on your cell phone.
Now it's also dangerous to drive while driving?

Most malls in tornado alley have shelters.  Also, their construction is a little more substantial than your typical stick house or mobile home.  Little to no windows, steel and concrete construction.  A 30 year old Sears might be the best place to ride one of these out.

spidermilk: Of course I refuse to live in a house without a basement. Be safe Kansas-ians and Oklahomans.


Got a friend who lives in Norman, her and her family had just got out of the shelter in their basement.
They're still keeping their eyes open, and the cell that passed their house is heading to where they have other family living at.
/eek

Yes, we've got a couple hours before it gets too bad.  1 hour east, we're under a watch until 1 am.

Epiphany: thisisyourbrainonFark: Epiphany: /this shiat will pre-empt the Celebrity Apprentice finale, damn't.

Truly an unspeakable tragedy.

Did I mention it's ALL STAR Celebrity Apprentice?

/just trying to tell some jokes, bad weather in this area of the country freaks me out


Sad thing is there was a Twitter outrage when The Bachelor got preempted for severe weather. Mostly a bunch of preppies pissed off that they were missing the season finale

This is that weatherwoman I was talking about earlier. I think I have a crush on her.

Yeah, I could see me enjoying an evening with her, me handcuffed and her booted foot on my neck.

The Weather Dominatrix?  I think that's only on TWC After Hours.
