To be fair back in 11 when it came through Chickasha, we got out but that 24 year old girl was trying to help her disabled mother out when theirs got pancaked. Not saying she was stupid or stubborn but her mom wasn't very mobile.

ArgusRun: spidermilk: meyerkev: aevorea: "Let's move out to the Midwest," the boyfriend says. "Tornadoes aren't that bad," he says.

Yeah. F*ck that noise.

You've got to put it in perspective.

Tornados wipe out EVERYTHING in their path which is about 1 half mile wide and 10 miles long.
Hurricanes wipe out EVERYTHING in the state of New Jersey (or Florida or the Carolinas, etc).
Earthquakes wipe out EVERYTHING within N miles of their epicenter (and occasionally trigger tsunamis which wipe out entire COUNTRIES on the other side of the ocean).
Floods wipe out EVERYTHING that's within their floodplain which can be miles wide and hundreds or thousands of miles long.
Every once in a while, a really, really, really bad thunderstorm will roll through and knock down some power lines, and drop a branch on some people's roofs.

The midwest has it pretty good as far as "OH SHIAT weather goes"

Exactly. I live in the midwest and to be frank, tornadoes are scary but a big blizzard that knocks out power or a heat wave where people lose power is far more deadly.

Only because of our density.  Cram 7 million on an island a a few people will die if you have a light rain storm.

The difference is, if you are healthy and prepared, It's hard to die in a blizzard.  Don't drive.  Have food and water.  Stay warm.  Don't burn shiat inside to stay warm without proper ventilation.

But if a tornado decides to pick you up and dump your remains nd the remains of your house a half mile away, then there's nothing you can d.


So much this.  I will take a blizzard over tornadoes any day of the week.  If I am walking down the street during the middle of a blizzard I still stand a damned good chance of making it home alive.  Hell, if I am walking in a blizzard chances are that I am already within walking distance of my home and barring some freak accident I will make it home alive.  If I am walking down the street in the middle of a tornado, well, chances are I am not walking down the street any more.

2xhelix: God-is-a-Taco: Oh now I see, my local station "news on six" online just uses a OKC feed. Odd.

Tulsa 6 and OKC 9 are sister stations.  The big advantage is that they each have a chopper to chase with, so they pool coverage for twice the punch.  You'll notice in the chopper feeds that one has a big 6 on the side and the other has a 9.


That is just because it is upside down at the time.

ArgusRun: 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.


I don't know why that was so funny, but the 30 yo sears comment lead to finding glass cleaner for my monitor.

Local news are doing both.  They can't exactly get the helicopter in front of the tornado to show the places that are in danger, though, so the news copters focus on where it's gone through while the meteorologists in the studio focus on the current storms and where they're heading.

Well I have lived in Oklahoma all my life and have been in several twisters (scariest are at night) wife is from Connecticut and after 11 when the sky gets dark and she says go I am loading up the dogs cats and kids and hauling ass to a safe spot. After they are safe is when I pull out the camera looking for funnels.

I've been watching TWC off and on and they're mixing coverage and really if someone can see what these storms has down already they might decide to be safer whem it's a warning for them.

At least that met is trying to get the message through to Welty...but now we're back to the trailer park.

DAMMIT, go back to telling Welty to take shelter. Ten minutes is...potentially lifesaving lead time. They need to NOT SHUT UP about Welty.

Tell that to the Oklahomans who got hit by the Piedmont tornado two years ago. That farker was a mile wide and traveled 70 miles across Oklahoma.

Tell that to Joplin.

Tell it to the folks in Shawnee today. That was about a half mile to a mile wide at times and traveled over 40 miles. I watched it form and watched it travel its entire path and am currently watching the coverage of the entire swath of homes it utterly obliviated and the truck it picked up off the highway, slammed down on another highway, and the one known fatality.

So, I'm sorry; you were saying about tornadoes and how good we have it?
 
2013-05-19 08:38:05 PM
I know trailer park residents are typically of limited financial means, but getting a trailer in tornado alley should also involve getting a small underground room that folks can jump into in case of severe weather. A simple, watertight, pre-fabricated box that goes into a hole next to the trailer.
