I picked this up earlier and the national news channels were feeding KFOR (I'm in Nevada).  They've switched to their own reporters.

I prefer the KFOR guy.

Shadow Blasko: ecmoRandomNumbers: Some guy on CNN is thanking the Lord for saving them from the tornado. The one He sent. And flattened an elementary school with.

Christ.

I flamed Danica Patrick on her twitter when she was talking about praying for the safety of the people in Moore.

"the disaster already happened. stop praying and open your purse and call the red cross. praying didn't work, time for actual action"


Good for you, yes I can send all the best wish's I want but it does nothing.

Can't get in touch with family in Moore and preliminary track shows it going about 1 mile south of cousin's house.  Not good.

Then, afterwards, someone will call her prayer overrated and her money chest too small.

Stretch_8: I think I just heard the chopper pilot for KFOR say something about a red dress....

:(


Yeah, I noticed they rather abruptly zoomed out. As someone who's worked in the media in the past, they probably saw something they didn't want to show on air.

Shepherd Smith just reported unconfirmed that 24 kids trapped at the school died.

Damn.....seven kids drowned in a pool of water at the base of debris at the elementary school.   They are estimating 20 to 30 more, according to KFOR reporter.

mikaloyd: elffster: http://www.monolithic.com/


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.

And heres a concrete dome over a school being built then collapsing

As I was SAYING in the other thread, MODERATOR, that one is headed towards Granbury, which was devastated during last week's storms. There's also a tornado warning for Montague County, which also had a tornado touch down last week (EF2). Are we working on some tornado ruts out here or what?

So its your fault?

Hm, it may be. I think I've had my lifetime limit of tornadic experiences so I've developed a weather bubble that deflects all the worst stuff.

In other news, not sure if I should stick with national coverage to keep up with Moore or stay local in case we get a warning. Hm..... I know the answer sounds obvious, but....


Get your ass somewhere safe and stay there young lady. I dont trust these damned tornadoes and dont want you playing fast and loose cuz you think you are tornado proof.

The amazing thing to me is those helicopters are flying maybe 10 miles away under the storm shelf.

I won't fly within 20nm of a thunderstorm!

ariseatex: Weather Channel now reporting the student fatalities at Plaza Towers.  Think they purposely avoided reporting it for a while there just to be "safe", I guess.


That sounds like they're expecting the search to go overnight they're asking for lights to be brought in.

Add in heavy rain with a lot of runoff and probably broken water lines pouring in.  Very tragic :(

You get pinned under debris in a concrete hallway when the roof and walls collapse, and rain water (or I suppose broken water mains) fill the hallway.

Busted water main, creates a pool at the bottom?

Is it wrong that I kinda hope they were knocked unconscious by debris first? I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

FatherDale: I'm listening to this farktard on CNN talk about how Jesus saved him and his wife from the tornado, and how the Lord took care of him. I wanted the reporter to ask him "So, those 24 children killed in that elementary school just weren't right with the Lord, eh?"


This. And if his god saved him then his god caused this. No supernatural being causes tornadoes, hurricanes, snowstorms, earthquakes or any other natural disaster and no supernatural being will save you from them either. It's just dumb luck, not divine intervention.

It's actually true. Here in Alabama they where useless for the Tuscaloosa Tornado outbreak.
All money to the red-cross goes into their 'general fund' very little of that actually reaches people in need.
Better to go on a website and donate to the local chapter of the Salvation Army in OKC---they target the area; and a very streamlined overhead cost.

WhyteRaven74: cc_rider: So are the news anchors on KFOR.

Yep them too, but to hear him talk about his mom voting at the school when he was a kid and the sound of his voice, just damn.



Once in a while our elected officials remind us that they are, in fact, human.

I agree if you want to avoid the worst of the winds you're going to need more than twenty nanometers.

The BBC, who are generally very cautious when it comes to reporting fatalities, are now saying "at least 10 people" have been killed.

They don't mention any deaths at the school though, just that kids are being pulled out alive. They likely won't report any fatalities there until there's some sort of confirmation from officials in the area.

She did save her dog.  And the cops can ticket her, she doesn't care.  But she may have a little concussion in her head.

/have to admit I laughed a bit, for the first time in a couple hours.


same. I love my dog, but no way I'm driving back into a tornado to save him

The time when Robin Hood can get boots on the ground tonight, I will consider it...The fact of the matter is:  the red cross has trucks, with water food and shelter headed for those in need right now.

There is a reason why they pay their exec's big bucks, they are professionals and that's what is need right now.

10 is the number confirmed by Oklahoma authorities from what I heard on TWC.  This doesn't include anyone at the school.
