    Ditto - not much one can say except hoping there's none to little loss of life

    Up to 51 according to news reports.

    An elementary school took a direct hit.

    Tornadoes are nasty. Never seen one, hope I never do. Been through 5 hurricanes that was enough for me.

    Only good thing about this situation is that they have not had as many deaths as they originally thought. It appears the death count is half what was reported yesterday. Prayers with Oklahomans

    The death toll in Oklahoma thankfully is still only roughly equal to the number of people killed by drunk drivers in this country EVERY SINGLE DAY. And unlike tornados, something can be done about that.

    The sad thing is that this town was hit by an even bigger tornado back in 1999, so this is the second time they've had to rebuild.
