This is the second day of major storms in Oklahoma. Right now my family and I are awaiting the storm system that cause major damage in Moore, Oklahoma, near Oklahoma City in the center of the state. A mile-wide tornado decimated an area of that city. The students at the 4th-6th grade center that was hit are all accounted for. Another school there with K-3rd was devastated, but we haven't heard that they've found those children yet.
In 1999 Moore was hit with an EF 5 tornado (over 300 mph winds and much destruction) which caused millions of dollars of damage and the total destruction of hundreds of homes and businesses. It was so powerful, it sucked the grass out of the ground and completely leveled homes to the foundations. They are telling us today's tornado has caused greater damage than the '99 tornado. It's so horrible they are going through this again.
The latest word is 7 children at the school are dead and 24 are still missing. Just received word from my daughter's friend in Moore 75-100 head of horses died at a horse training center there in Moore.
