That big tornado was just south west of Wichita about a half an hour ago.

Glad you made it, but I hear more is on the way.  Take care.

Nasty tornados. Really scary to be in the wake of these things.

Good to see you got through it.  :)

Horrible news and photos coming out of Moore, OK.  My prayers are with the people there.

I was helping my probrewer friends in east OKC. We had barely finished transferring to the conical when Moore got hit, and we evacuated the brewery for 45 mins before returning to clean up amidst a crazy hail storm. We were fine, but Moore is like a war zone. Thankfully my friends down there are safe.

Reminded me of the tornados that hit Alabama a couple years ago last April. Had to flee the brewery, one hit my kids school then the next one wiped out electricity for a week.

Thoughts and prayers with all on OK and about.

What a tragedy in Oklahoma last night. The tornado was reported to be some 2 miles wide at one point. Terrible situation there now...
