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.
R.I.P Shawnee Smith
shower_in_my_socks: MSNBC just broke into regular programming with coverage of a tornado heading toward a mall in eastern OK. Shawnee I believe.
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.
Shadow Blasko: Multiple Vortices now.. Wow thats a monster.
