netweavr: SmackLT: AP says winds in excess of 200 mph. Holy shiatF5 is 261-318 mph....
Macinfarker: Victim: "I did call News Channel 4, and...."Carl: "Well you're talking to News Channel 9 now."Sigh.
Warthog: On this feed http://kfor.com/on-air/live-streaming/ they're showing the Moore / Norman hospital. Looks like it acted like a giant funnel catching cars -- they're all piled up into a mountain five or six deep against the main entrance. Looks like the tsunami from Japan more than any tornado damage I've ever seen.

Glad to hear your (relatively) good news.Cheers,fark.com
Coco LaFemme: Almost Everybody Poops: Dumb-ass reporter talking to a guy who lost is home:"Where do you live? Where is your home?"Guy points to wreckage.Apparently when you go into broadcast journalism, they don't make you take a class on how to speak someone who has just been affected by a natural disaster.
stir22: Adolf Oliver Nipples: The worst part about all of this? If the climate guys are right, this is just the beginning, it's only going to get worse from here.yeah....looks like it.
Macinfarker: Female reporter onsite just scolded disaster tourists for causing problems. good on her.
Shadow Blasko: I had a nightmare about Moore last night. Then I woke up and it was real.I just... I don't have anything more to add I guess.
Mike_LowELL: netweavr: F5 is 261-318 mph....http://www.spc.noaa.gov/faq/tornado/ef-scale.htmlThey changed this up a while ago. 200+ would now constitute "EF5".
Marine1: BREAKING NEWS:Flooding in St. Louis as Katie Horner achieves orgasm from news that these storms could possibly be on their way to her station's viewing area.
The Downfall: Just realized they are saying this one was over 2 miles wide. Joplin 2011 was 1 mile (158 dead in an F5). Tuscaloosa 2011 was 1.5 (64 dead in F4). Moore 1999 was 1 mile (41 dead in F5)
Marine1: God-is-a-Taco: Marine1:They're possible, you just have to be willing to build one. We carved a damn fortress into Cheyenne Mountain, for fark's sake.They should be built into the price of a home. This thing where people get killed and they find the corpse 1/2 a mile away from the home because they didn't have anywhere to go is getting really old. Especially when it's a kid.Why would a business offer a service like that at a price people here could afford, much less for free? They're there to make money, not care about people.It's not that much more, really. Especially when you consider the cost of housing in the Midwest and Great Plains.Let's say you don't put a basement in EVERY home. If these towns can dig trenches for sewers, storm drains, and water mains, they can dig a 20'x20' (hell, smaller than that) every block or two as a tornado shelter.It's a practice that we know would save lives. There's no real reason NOT to do it.
Di Atribe: Marine1: There's no real reason NOT to do it.We just told you a bunch of reasons why it's not done. You just keep ignoring them.
WizardofToast: I just heard a hospital was leveled but evacuated. I don't know if that was the one my mother's in.Fark. Texting her and she hasn't replied yet. I want to say she's either hustling or still hanging out in the shelter and didn't know I texted.
jshine: Macinfarker: Female reporter onsite just scolded disaster tourists for causing problems. good on her.Pot, meet kettle.
meyerkev: Detroit - nice family home with good schools, and Detroit Public Water - $130K.
ringersol: The Downfall: "Tornadoes are not hurricanes."Excellent work. You've blah blah successfully blah composed of
megalynn44: That is freaky. They zoomed in on the school and there was an exposed interior wall with all the backpacks still neatly hanging on the hooks.
ArtosRC: jshine: Macinfarker: Female reporter onsite just scolded disaster tourists for causing problems. good on her.Pot, meet kettle.One of them is doing her job. The others are being vultures.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: The worst part about all of this? If the climate guys are right, this is just the beginning, it's only going to get worse from here.
ecmoRandomNumbers: CNN reporting that it might have been an F7 tornado./listening to these people fills me with rage and wonder.
