A strong line of thunderstorms setup along the east side of a dryline extending from Kansas south into north Texas area.
Strong and some severe thunderstorms that produced numerous tornado’s fired up on the east side of the dryline and quickly intensified as they moved away from my tiny farm before striking Oklahoma City, Moore and Norman OK. area.
This storm has a confirmed 51 dead and searchers are still sifting rubble for more victims of this storm.
The National Weather Service estimated that the storm that struck Moore, Okla., on Monday had wind speeds of up to 200mph (320kph).
The 1999 storm that struck the same general area of Oklahoma, had winds clocked at 300 mph(480kph), according to the weather service website, and it destroyed or damaged more than 8,000 homes, killing at least two people.
Oklahomans are a hearty, tough, resilient bunch. In the next few days, weeks and months we will bury and grieve for our dead. Then we will do what we always do. We will rebuild our towns, our cities and our lives..
