I have survived the 1970 May 11th tornado, Lubbock Texas. I will never forget it, I was outside riding my tri cycle and my mom came outside and through me and my brother in a closet, I remember watching the roof being torn off, next thing I do remember was my dad carrying me in waist deep water, my grand mother worked at the Lubbock club and she watched two servers get sucked out of the windows, on the 14th floor This Tornado ripped our city up
The last F5 tornado was when Kelli and I lived in Oklahoma, MAY 3 1999 HUGE F5 OKLAHOMA TORNADO, I was working at WH Stewart Steel. I had just gotten to work. it took out 3 building, our CNC presses and 5 brake presses, 600 ton Press, 2-350 ton presses and the 1942 Cincinnati brake press, and 1 150 ton press. it also took out our Powder paint line.
When kelli and I first moved to OKC I was looking for work and just applied at Stewart and was on my way home when the Oklahoma City Bombing happened at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. They shut interstate 40 down and went through 4 check points. we lived on Lake Hefner. It took me 10 hours to get home. Kelli was tripping, we didn't have cell phones back in those days, WH Stewart is only 7 blocks from the Murrah building.
Interesting times we have lived.
