Hope it doesn’t come to that... but the situation doesn’t look good...so I suspect you’ll plan on it and if nothing comes of it you’re still good to go. News makes it sound like it’s a dangerous build up though...

What state are you in if you don’t mind my asking?

We had two E-1 tornadoes here in Pa...and rare that occurs...from the same pattern that previously went thru the Alley.

That's exactly where I thought the first tornado would form, a storm out in front of the main line merged into another cell in that area.

The Moore tornado came from a supercell that had another cell merge with it.

The weathermen are so excited

Even Dr. Forbes, the Weather Channel's severe weather guru, is rather aghast....saying he's never seen what was just fluffy clouds 30 minutes before, blossom to 11 mile high superstorms.

Today, I'm feeling fortunate that I live within sight of the San Andreas Fault.

Just east of Bridgeport, OK, along and just south of I-40 heading toward El Reno, possibly Yukon.

Rotation increasing, nearing 100 mph.

Weather Chaser says he cannot see any rotation on the ground.

Sirens sounding in El Reno.

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law both lost their homes in Joplin two years ago. I pray that they don’t have to suffer from this again. The devastation there was incredible. We drove down the next day to help them. All the landmarks were gone, as well as all the street signs. It took us a while to even figure out where we were. We finally found a home for them both to live in together, both widows, my sister-in-law lost her husband in the tornado. They survived, but lost many friends.

Prayers up for all in the path.

KFOR

Rotation sections may be joining, potential to develop into larger MASSIVE tornado just west of El Reno.

Circulation is rain-wrapped, difficult to make out whether tornado(s) have formed.

KFOR radar shows vortex formed.

Hail size just over 3” diameter.
