Calmed down again in KC. Some light rain and occasional thunder/lightning, but the winds are back to normal.

Torn newspaper clipping from OKC area fell out of the sky in Jenks, OK.
 
2013-05-19 09:00:54 PM
There's debris from the OKC area landing in the Tulsa area now.  Wonder if I should go out and look for flying money?

Weakening a ton into Tulsa.

Meanwhile in San Francisco, drop-dead perfect weather for the Bay to Breakers race. I finished in 2 hours, 4 minutes. Suck it, Westboro Baptist Church.

Shadow Blasko: Do we have another feed for where the storms are at now?

The Shawnee Fire, PD and EMS are having trouble getting around because of all the debris in the roadways.

One fatality confirmed in Shawnee right now.
One EMS used up so much equipment that they had to return to headquarters to restock.

Storms are dying off when they get to Tulsa though

Fiction Fan: "Any fatalities?"

"Confirm one. Repeat. Confirm one."

- Scanner feed.


From what they are showing there has to be lots. They just said multiple fatalities...

Ariseatex, are you seeing this huge rotation in the middle of the storm near Welty? I'm thinking either it's nothing or it's gonna be huge.

Those are the idiots that were ignoring storms on the ground for sensational shots of the trailer park. Not happy with them at the moment.. and the storms are moving out of that area.

That was huge, but it's weakening.  I'm not ruling out reformation, though, on that one.

Well, it's been an interesting day here in Okla.

jfarkinB: Getting seriously creeped out hearing "I-40" again and again, given that we live maybe half a mile north of I-40 -- fortunately for us, about 1200 miles east.


Don't get overconfident - that tornado could draft behind a semi, maybe use the carpool lane, and be there in no time.
 
2013-05-19 09:06:09 PM

Bunny Deville: Follow him on Facebook, he posts all sorts of science leaks.

I just wish he was still on WHNT so I could hear him talk about fraidy holes and frog stranglers.


Cool I'll have to check that out sometime.

So true : ) Also just loved when he'd get caught up in all the nuances of a storm and start playing with all the cool settings, VIL, velocities, etc, good times.

I hope they're keeping their eye on it. I can just see that one spitting out a mile wide F4 or something.

Also, I do hope this crap isn't headed my way next. The other day I had to track for my dad because there was a little one headed right for his house. He saw the funnel cloud and got 2 inches of rain in 20 minutes.

SF is well overdue for a true megaquake, though- as in 1906 scale.
Each day it doesn't have one the odds increase.

Seattle has that problem as well, although it's mostly in regards to a tsunami from an offshore one.

You know that wasn't pretty...but that looked wallish to me.

UH, yep, that's a wall. NOT rotating obvs, and it looks pretty high, but...

It's much easier than you think.  The underwater geography is such that it would easily channel and amplify any tsunami that did come in.

There's also concern from an earthquake causing a Whidbey Island (or a similar Sound Island) rockfall creating a massive wave in itself.

You are not Mississippi who gets Tornadoes AND Hurricanes or something like that.

/If you want to avoid severe weather move to Maine, lived in northern Maine for 15 years other than the occasional blizzard now big weather problems and you can prepare for for blizzards.


Believe it or not, that was a prime consideration for my retiring here.

When he got home, he asked his wife, Tabitha, "Why are we still here?" Here, as in frigid Maine.
Until then, he says, "we never really came to terms with the idea that we were rich." When they did, they headed to the west coast of Florida ("surprisingly funky," King says). At first they rented, then bought a winter home, near Sarasota.

Also I know where your dad lives (approximately) I watched the same storm you did. I knew it was putting down a lot of rain but not that much, dang. I do the same for my parent's.
Oh, and so far NWS doesn't think it will be that bad but it all depends on how the upper level low tracks the next 3+days.

But aren't they both on the San Andreas fault? I'm no seismologist, but if one of them is at risk wouldn't both of them be?
Whoops, turned this thread offtopic, although stuff seems to be calming down for today.

So is the giant swirl towards the left an EF9? (I know they don't exist, but it looks like it). Similar to a hurricane on land.

He's in northern Lauderdale County. That thing was seriously headed right for him, we were both pretty freaked out. I had to track it for him because of course his satellite went out.

An eruption would happen with a month's notice (if not longer).  All those glaciers on the mountain could "flash melt" anytime though, as a precursor to an eruption (or just because it feels like farking with everyone who moved into the lahar zone).
