Warthog: Fark.  The school is now a recovery operation, with as many as TWO DOZEN kids still in the school.  RIP little children.


I was at my daughter's class partytoday. Now I'm crying in publix imagining those poor kids.

Local NBC affiliate, being reported by the reporter who's been on-site for the last couple hours.  And all the pictures of the first responders on the debris pile sure look like they're making preparations to bring out lots of bodies from a small area.

The tornado is obviously a Democrat.
Then again, isnt everything that destroys buildings, businesses and local economies Democrat

^ idiot friend of a friend on FB,

wanted to say, Hey FF, how about you show us guns don't kill ppl, by loading yours up, getting it completely ready to fire, sticking it in your mouth and pulling the trigger.

They're reporting that they've moved to a recovery effort. They're not looking for victims, they're pulling out bodies.

Lance West, a local reporter, with local sources, reported it. I don't doubt it.

When was that? They just said on the local news stream that it's no longer a search & rescue at Plaza Towers, but a search & recovery, and they estimate about 2 dozen children to be missing from the school.

He's been struggling to contain himself for hours.  He's known for a while that there would be some BAD news from that school.

Scott McClellan @alastormspotter30sPlaza Towers Elementary School is now a recovery mission and not a search rescue effort, according to KFOR. #tornado

Debris field was 2.25 miles wide at one point.

Local KFOR weather guy estimated 2.25 miles wide and damaged 30 square miles.

Local meteorologist says this particular town has been hit by THREE F4 or F5 tornadoes now.  Wow
 
2013-05-20 07:37:17 PM
Here's the KFOR feed:  http://kfor.com/on-air/live-streaming/   I have to say that their coverage has been exemplary for the last several hours.  Professional, informative, respectful, and careful to qualify what they know vs. what they've heard in rumors.   In other words, the anti-CNN.  One of their reporters appears to have personally helped dig out the bodies of four of the victims, and only went on air after the recovery was done.

ArkAngel: If tornadoes in Kansas bring you to Oz, where do tornadoes in Oklahoma bring you?


I left Oklahoma riding a tornadoes back
Just about to lose my mind
I flew over Arizona maybe on to California
Where the quakes and fires intertwine
The air force called me crazy Pecos Pete called me lazy
But the idea to ride this thing wasnt mine
Cuz you know I aint no fool and I didnt steer at the school and
I'd rather just walk this time

Riding on twister time
Its Riding that twister time
Well you knw I didnt chose to
And next time I will refuse to
Ride a twister next time

I'm in Tulsa and over the past 2 days in Mid-town it has hardly rained and barely any wind, I only brought my trash cans, and lawn furniture cushions inside a couple hours ago and still no weather here.

I don't know, there was no time stamp. Found it on an Atlanta news station's feed, and right after I posted it, the OKC station said that it was now a recovery effort. Bad farking timing. :(

There is a local weather legend on the CBS affiliate, Gary England. But, over the last couple of years, Mike Morgan, on KFOR has been the goto guy for weather. All the anchors on KFOR are local people that have been on the air for years.

these guys make concrete domes, and I believe that its much better protection than a traditional stick built house.  I would hope that we can move towards building houses and buildings for folks, instead of what we use now...its too flimsy.

Unbelievable.

The video footage is deeply scary. Hoping like hell those cars were abandoned before it hit and everyone on that road found somewhere safer to be.

I just heard a report on the news of someone that said he rode out the storm on a saw horse.

It's looking like the tornado itself may pass to the south of Joplin proper, if it stays on its current course.
