Wow, that tornado aftermath is horrendous. I've never been through a tornado, but I think Ca's earthquakes are a lesser evil than that!! Jeezes, you see all the cars tossed like matchbox toys? And then, semi trucks tossed like Tonka toys..... The local hospital parking lot was cleared and the cars TOTALED, not dented, not scratched, totaled!!! Houses just GONE... No sign there was ever a house there, and some of the hospital stuff was found 60, YES 60, miles away!!! Do we have any PB members in Joplin?....

When those storms a few weeks ago came through here it blew down a huge white oak right outside my office. This tree was over 100 years old and abaout a 6 foot diameter trunk. A tornado never touched down here but my weather station recorded 108 MPH wind.

The damage a EF4 or EF5 tornado can cause is massive. Wind speeds of 200MPH. That is well over what a category 5 hurricane puts out.

Same storm missed us by only 2 miles. It's heartbreaking to see the aftermath of a tornado. Was listening to the news this morning about a couple that are looking for their 16 month old baby. Havent found him yet.

My family is from Joplin and my grandfather said he would take a earthquake over a tornado any day of the week.

Oklahoman's get ready!!! News has already asked all employers to have their employees home by 3 today. They have put a 100% guarantee that we will have hail bigger than baseballs and multiple tornadoes that will stay on the ground for longer than 45 minutes.
