I lived through a 1 mile wide tornado that came through Indianapolis back in the 1950s. It skipped over our neighborhood, but not others.

OK tornadic cell is tracking at about 35 mph paralleling Hwy 66. Tornadic activity for about 45 minutes.

Tulsa area is in current path, if storm holds together.

Here in Colorado, green like that has always been bad

The US Geological Survey considers parts of Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming to be part of the Great Plains, the western most portion of the vast North American Interior Plains.

OK helo video is being showing on The Weather Channel.

Possibly their website or KFOR-TV out of OKC.

Back in the 50’s, neighbors, friends and relatives called us crazy for leaving Kansas for California earthquakes.

Thank you so much for starting this thread. I’m in KC and watching non-stop since it’s coming my way.

Lived in LA for almost 20 years and went through the Northridge quake. I hate quakes - no warning, nothing. I must admit, though, this is the first tornado outbreak I’m preparing myself for. Very scary.

OK tornado cell is being reported as at least an EF3 and probably an EF4.

Nothing more frightening than a large earthquake and the Northridge quake really got people’s attention, but tornados destroy and kill every year in tornado alley. Stay safe. I’m praying for everybody in your area.

Looked at your profile page, love your pups (and cats, too). We live on the other side of the state line. I am hoping this is much ado about nothing, our pups don’t like the basement. We lied in the same house for many years, and no dog has ever voluntarily come down the basement steps. I wonder what they know that we don’t!

Many people don’t realize that over half of Colorado is mostly flat and is in the Great Plains.

Went to School at Park University in KC, married a girl from Wichita, spent 3 years in Topeka, and Ft. Riley, Ks. Got caught in the open one time on the Kansas turnpike had to lay in a ditch. Many scary times in tornado alley. Went through Greenberg Ks 3 weeks after it got blown off the map, what devastation, it looked like it had been bombed! After moving away we would only visit out of tornado season. I hated it when tornado watches lasted all night.

To my Oklahoma FR brothers and sisters:
-
Here in Georgia,
we have tornadoes from time to time.
They usually just pop up from out of nowhere in a passing thunderstorm.

We typically don’t get very much warning.

They will just pop up all of a sudden, drop down, tear up things, and go away.

I don’t know if it is because of topography or geography,
or what, but y’all seem to get a least a little bit of waring before you get hit.

I don’t know which is worse...
...knowing one is coming...
...or having one pop up out of nowhere...

...but my prayers are with you, my FR brothers and sisters.

These thunderstorms powering up during the day the past few days have been some real monsters. Yesterday in West Texas we were just on the western edge of the brewing trouble. The winds were very unusual. We normally have strong winds in West Texas, but the winds yesterday seemed to come from all directions at once. Atmosphere was very unstable.

That's not actually that bad, as these things go. Bad is just a pile of lumber or a scrubbed foundation.

It looks like someone could live through that, if they took cover internal to the house.

That said, prayers for all affected.

Not good. Never like the super cell storms..I would rather see a line of storms coming than those individual cells.
