There have been two times in my 30 years of living around here that I've been very concerned.... the first was during the infamous May 3rd, 1999 outbreak... I was living in Norman and for awhile it looked like the big one was headed our way before it turned north.
The second time was tonight-- at one point they had the track on line with our house. We had the closet cleaned out, helmets ready for the kids, etc. Again, we got lucky and this time went south.
Doesn't sound like these tornadoes were anywhere close to as deadly or damaging as the ones 11 days ago, but they won't know for sure until morning. Having said that, you need to check out what happened to the Weather Channel vehicle tonight...wow.
The big problem is that it has not stopped pouring....last I heard they were saying 8-12 inches and it keeps coming...massive flooding all over. Over 75.000 customers without power. A total and complete mess.
