awalkingecho: way south: Cops don't specialize in digging through rubble.
What you're looking for are fire, rescue, or (failing that) any construction workers you can grab.

I think they'll take the extra manpower, just this once.




Not disagreeing, but too many people have the misconception that cops are supermen that know how to deal with every problem and also won't have their own duties to attend to in emergencies.
If I wanted staff in reserve for this kind of event then I'd be looking for rescue or construction types that are familiar with buildings, demolition, and heavy equipment.

/Grab as many rednecks and backhoes as you can from the surrounding counties.
/Use the cops to clear the roads and sort the traffic to get them in faster.
/a dozen guys in body armor trying to hand sort rubble isn't going to progress well.

Random Name Generator: Di Atribe: candiru.fish: //Shout out to the Denton Farkers, I spent the weekend there, LOVE that town

Yes! I love hearing this!


Random Name Generator: structural damage in poteau, ok, power flashes reported in alma, ar. likely long track tornado in s. of fort smith area.

Fark. I have a friend whose family is in Alma. Do I bug him now to see if everyone's ok or maybe I should wait until tomorrow.

Looking at the radar, the hook is definitely not like Moore. I think there are two tracks - one at N. Ft. Smith going north of Alma, and one going from Poteau, OK, to S. Ft. Smith, to Charleston, AR. That makes more sense.

For reference, the orange circle seems to be where the hook is, near Alma, from about 30mins ago.

Captain Sardine: Damn sucks. Bad news. Wish best for all.

Charities -
Do the normal Red Cross, Salvation Army, any local ones is great.

Please. if possible - Flip a few $ to the local animal shelters. ( I have no links to them)
They will need help too. More than they can handle.
The critters need some Love too.

Another Farker asked way up from this - Can a Tornado eat up the road? Or something of the kind.
Yes they can.
They can consume the road. Even your house concret slab. Depends on the Tornados feedings.
They are the shop vac of the Gods.

For Fark - Yes, I have to do a "nasty". This is Fark.

OOOOk-lahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain  ... OMG WTF!!!
Sorry. As said, this is Fark.

Please think of the critters and help them too.


Not the Red Cross!

evaned: Uchiha_Cycliste: Will we be able to model and predict exactly when and where tornadoes will strike down?

I kind of doubt it. Weather is chaotic enough that more computing power only helps to some extent; you need to start from good observations about the current state as well. I'd guess we'd need significant advances in that as well.

I'd bet more that we'd be able to have some measure of  control -- this might even be easier than prediction in some sense.


I can imagine a day when the sky is filled with little solar powered weather drones at various altitudes all over the world and that data is fed into massive computers worldwide resulting in one solid earth weather map. The earth is a closed system. In theory if one were able to measure and correlate all of the forces at work below the edge of space and above the earth, they would have some wicked predicting power. Right?

Holy shiat. That is one chill dude.


Probably in shock. He probably expected to actually see things still standing when he came out. Imagine going down in your shelter with everything normal and coming back up from your shelter to see that. You'd be in shock too.

Uchiha_Cycliste: I'll bet we are doing a hell of a lot better than we were a hundred years ago. I can't imagine what the cost would be if we had yesterday's technology and today's residential density. These super outbreaks are tragic in every way. At  least we know that there are people working all over to warn people and minimize damage before hand and save lives after the fact.


Just 40 years ago my dad was City Manager of a town in southern Kansas.  We knew a tornado was likely or not... but still when one actually appeared and he had to go to the Emergency Management Center, it usually happened after 11pm and the storm turned from "possible" to "gonna happen" in about 15 minutes.  So he got to the EMC just about when the tornado formed, unless he didn't and it came out of nowhere.  He told me earlier tonight he would have killed for the heads-up they have today.  Moving first responders so well, so quickly, so precisely based on meteorological knowledge and prediction is incredible.  If Joplin had happened in '74, triple the deaths.

Yeah, the sirens go off here when there's a tornado a whole 10 miles away... and goddamn meteorologist Katy Horner cuts into my shows cuz weather makes her wet... but it's really just a way of somebody saying "hey, you could die tonight, so pay a little attention."

Will we be able to model and predict exactly when and where tornadoes will strike down? Will we have totally weather proof housing? The future is going to be amazing.

I don't think it will ever be perfect unless there's some sort of time travel. I mean so many chaotic variables
But to have these things down to a cone of probability and really a thunderstorm warning on days like this should be understood as a tornado may form and they have cones of probability for those.
/And really the warning time has increased so much, it's amazing.


I think in a few hundred years with enough historical data to cross reference and enough sensory data being analyzed in real-time we could very well prefect predictions. If we ever get to the point where we can understand how *ALL* of the weather, everywhere, is related to everywhere else. If we get to the point where there is still randomness but no unknown factors, that it could be doable.

Needless to say he isn't too popular with the folks who live in the nicer homes with shelters having to contend with Jim Bob showing up at their house.

2013-05-20 10:54:10 PM

Uchiha_Cycliste: It's been said over and over that a shelter isn't necessarily trivial. Depending on the ground water and what the ground is made of. Some places it will flood. Some places have huge, huge boulders in the ground. You can't assume a basement can be built everywhere.


Fair enough,

That said, you don't need to build a shelter below ground level, you can cover buildings with dirt, or into the side of man made hills.
that should take care of flying debris and flooding issues.

Alternatively go with foot thick reinforced concrete walls and roofs.  even throwing a couple dozen cars at speed at the same location at a wall like that shouldn't be a problem as a properly designed building should have appropriate buffer areas that are sacrificial before damage reaches shelter areas.

So far I haven't seen any reason why the above won't work beyond, it will add cost.  Are there engineering difficulty's absolutely,  insurmountable difficulties, or particularly new or difficult problems? No.  engineers aren't trying to solve fusion here.

So the question, from a strictly monetary view is, How much tax would those children have paid in their lives.  Would that have paid for a reinforced school?  That i can't answer.

Well the old man who owned the park before we moved in in 2009 (cool no nonsense guy) had four in ground shelters. He paid someone to come in keep them pumped out keep up maintenance, etc. He sold park when his age became a factor. The young asshole who bought it, to save money filled all four in with cement citing that kid would down in them and it was too expensive to pump them out

I was reading last night that some trailer parks aren't required to have a shelter; but if they don't they need to advertise that fact. So it's the option between building a shelter or a big sign that says no shelter.

Shadow Blasko: Uchiha_Cycliste: Shadow Blasko: Uchiha_Cycliste: bkosh84: Shadow Blasko: sethstorm: Tornadoes: None in my neck of the woods, since they all seem to go to the east or south.

Please tell me where in SW Ohio you are where you have not had a tornado within 10 miles?

Wasn't there a tornado in Xenia or whatever back in the 1920's or 1930's that was the deadliest in history,?

I thought it was called the tri-state tornado or something.

That one never really got into Ohio.

I don't know how Ohio got tied into anything. I was just replying that I thought the deadliest tornado (ever) was one called the tri-state tornado.
That represents the extent of my knowledge of the tri-state tornado =/

Ok.. I see what happened here.

Sethstorm said that there were no tornadoes in his neck of the woods (But said that he was in SW Ohio)

I was like Wait.. wha?

and posted a link to the Xenia Storm... and Bkosh84 brought up the great Tri-state tornado.

We started in Ohio, then moved to the Tri State tornado, then came back to Ohio.


Lol, this actually made me smile for some reason. First time since I got home from work today and saw the news. Thanks man.

Man On Pink Corner: Uchiha_Cycliste: I can imagine a day when the sky is filled with little solar powered weather drones at various altitudes all over the world and that data is fed into massive computers worldwide resulting in one solid earth weather map. The earth is a closed system. In theory if one were able to measure and correlate all of the forces at work below the edge of space and above the earth, they would have some wicked predicting power. Right?

Chaos theory.  How does it work?


dependably!

Fort Smith resident here. It's calmed down a bit in the city for now. It started to get pretty hairy about 30 minutes ago but nothing developed here. Strangely enough, I was also a Joplin resident when the May 22nd one hit. Good times... >_>

I got ya. I guess I popped in at the wrong time, or without enough elaboration.
