A ghastly, mile-wide tornado touched down in suburbs near Oklahoma City on Monday, leveling homes, businesses and schools in Moore. There were no immediate reports of fatalities or injuries, though the images from a local TV helicopter on scene showed monsterous destruction.

The funnel cloud could be seen for miles, creating a debris field several miles wide. Weather officials estimated the strength of the tornado to be an F4 or F5.

Doppler radar estimates suggest that twister has the potential to produce 200 mph.

An unfortunate irony: The suburb of Moore was hit hard by a tornado in 1999 that included the highest winds ever recorded near the earth's surface, killing 41 people.

We get hurricanes here but we get 3 days to get out of the way.

These poor people had no chance.

They said it was so big that people would have not been able to tell it was a twister. They probably thought it was a cloud.

Terrible. sad2.gif

They will be able to determine today whether if was a F4 or F5; they think an F5. Supposedly, there were a half dozen tornadoes in the area that day due to jet stream changes. They expect more tornadoes, because this is just the start of the season. damned.gif

The people did not have a chance, it formed quickly then struck, even if they followed the correct emergency procedures. Also, a new reporter stated that Moore had been directly hit three other times previously, so the people were trained in emergency procedures. They just weren't able to withstand this tenatively F5 category tornado.
