    I've only seen the remnants of an EF5 tornado after the fact once in my life and it was horrific. Winds over 200 mph does mind-boggling damage. Prayers and good thoughts to those of you in Oklahoma.

    Going to elementary school in Oklahoma, we had frequent "disaster drills", where all the kids would go into the hallways, and tuck into the crash position against the lockers. (In junior high and high school, we just stood against the lockers.) Those hallways without any windows, and reinforced with lockers, was as good as it got, and probably good enough for anything up to an F3. The F4s and F5s can bend a steel girder. If one of those hits, a shelter isn't going to do much good. And F4s and F5s ARE unusual, even in Tornado Alley.

    I hope they're ok Clubber.

    I'm watching ABC live on the web and haven't heard about the students except for a post saying they were all accounted for. The death toll is up to 37 and expected to climb.

    CNN is saying the death toll is up to 51 now, but they didn't specify if that was just OK or all the midwest that got hit. But they;re only reporting 7 children dead at the school. That's still 7 too many.

    Clubber, I pray your family is safe.
    Princess, very glad your family is ok.And I wouldn't blame you if you kept your child from school until that damn storm front is long gone.I had to stop watching. It's so horrific. I'm praying for Miracles.

    My husband lost a lot of property (A house and half an apartment) in the '99 tornadoes I'm not looking at pictures from this one because I know what I'll see and it will upset me even more

    Keeping all of those in OKC today in my thoughts and trying to find the best way to help in this time of need.

    My sister and her family live down there and my niece actually works in Moore Oklahoma. My nephew lives in Oklahoma and is a storm chaser, which freaks my sister out. They are all okay. My niece works at an electronics store and as soon as they got a tornado watch, the owner closed the store and sent them all home.

    Meanwhile my nephew and two other guys were in their armored vehicle chasing that damn tornado and taking pictures.
