I live in Indiana, we get a lot of tornado's here I survived the ones of palm sunday 1964 when twin F5's swept through our community, the school gym across from where we lived was used as a morgue because they ran out of room. I was only 5, when I peeked from behind my grandfathers legs as he stood on our front porch, I saw in the distance what I thought was two big black legs of a giant coming. My grandmother put us all in the basement and lit candles, she said "pray girls, pray" our home was left untouched. But as we drove through to check on relatives in the aftermath, the images are forever etched on my mind. Prayers for you Oklahoma

My prayers go out to all the people in Oklahoma, this was a tragedy of unbelievable proportions. As a child I always wandered what we would do in case of a tornado since no one has cellars or basements. (thank you wizard of oz)

Yes scary stuff: tornado, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wars, etc. I hope you/everyone has inner strenght to deal with all of that and a solid believe with God. As I went to the Memorial at the Copley Sq. and at the bomb site itself on Sun. in the city of Boston I thought of ALL of you here on the site and we all get by with a little or a lot of help from our friends. Love you all and may God give you His peace and comfort.

With so many disasters taking place all over I have started praying each night for the catastrophes to pass the family and you puzzlers by. This last tornado is the worst I remember seeing on the news. We were looking at areas to move in Oklahoma and also near Joplin MO. I'm glad we stayed put.

I remember the tornado that hit Zaneville, OH when live there. Scared the wits out of me. I have a high respect for them. When ever I hear of one, I think of all of the damage they can do.
Basinda, you are a year younger than I am.

Basinda, I am a year younger than you. I remember a hurricane that hit when I was about 5. It was a minor storm( I've been through a lot worse) but I will never forget the few days of storm weather. We lost a barn and two cows, but everyone was safe.
I always feel for the kids when I hear of disasters. They don't understand what is going to happen until it hits..

Yes and they tend to have it always with them, I still have nightmares of tornados and sometimes when I was little in these nightmares, there would be a tap at my window and I would look out and it was a big dark swirling cloud and it would growl at me. then as I got older the dreams were more of tornadoes and me rushing my children to safety but finding no safe place. a reality for so many.
I never was in a hurricane but oh my gosh that is like a tornado too only much much bigger. and instead of a vacuum sucking things up it is blowing them down.

At least with a hurricane there is usually a few days warning. We have time to prepare. I just can't imagine earthquakes or tornadoes. One minute you're fine and the next......

The tornado in Moore, OK was about 1/3 of a mile from us, we have been thru 6 here since we moved here in '83. This one was south of us and
the other F-5 was about 1/4 or less to the north of us. This was the worst for us, the two older 19 & 20 were here with us, but my daughter teaches at one of the HS that was near the path, and our youngest granddaugter was in school at Plaza Towers. We also knew our daughter's house was gone, from the radio. Our granddaughter is fine, had a small bruise on her arm and lots of debris in her hair, it was also her birthday. It was early evening, before she and her mother finally arrived at our at our home, both with separate people, but both fine and well.
This was the longest day I have lived thru. We were without power, water, and phones until yesterday afternoon after, and I finally of internet service after noon today. We are thanking GOD for taking care of our family. I needed to relax some after all that has gone on so signed to do some puzzles and get away for awhile.

Dear Catlady OKC:
I am so glad you are all okay. How you can stand to live in areas with that kind of threat hanging over you -- your faith must be iron clad! I will also thank God you are all safe.

So far all of them have missed, and we have terrific weather coverage from all our major TV, and radio stations, also we have a weather radio. We will be putting in a shelter (our house was built in 1970 and has never been hit), not sure which type, but my husband also has to walk with a crutch and even then not well. He had a C5, 6 fracture to his neck in a vehicle accident and they had told him that he would never walk again, but he worked hard enough, and with God's care he was able to leave rehab on two bearing crutches after almost 4 months of rehab. We will need a type he can get into easily.

Why don't towns in flat areas make berms and plant them with something to hold them down, then put shelters in them all around town? That way they wouldn't flood but people would have a safe place when the tornadoes come.
CatLadyOKC
May 27, 2013
Some smaller towns do, but Moore is over 50, 000 people. There is a town in SW Kansas that has been rebuilt as a green town, but it was a much smaller town. Also part of the area shown on TV is actually in OKC. It depend which side of the street which city you live in. These are average or below average homes and $3000 up for a shelter gets expenisve. This year & last year one of the local stations have given away 40-50 shelters each year, but that was in the viewing area and that covers about 2/3 of Oklahoma State. Most of the homes in the area and the schools were actually build in the 70's before the safe room, they came about later.

PS the town in Kansas, is Greensburg. You can find out information about it online.

You would think the federal government would initiate a program for this instead of letting it happen and then doling out for a catastrophe. They would save lives and money that way. It should be required of the city planners and not left to developers who put houses on unstable land and anywhere they can make a buck. Sorry. A pet peeve of mine!
CatLadyOKC
May 27, 2013
There are some grants etc. for schools and individuals, also driving any where is really unsafe, the warning time varies storm to storm, depending on how fast they are moving and many states have tornadoes. We have several people neighbors that have them. Most were put in after the '99 tornado. The safe rooms also work well it they are put in with new construction, the add on's not so well. They are considering some changes in the laws here. More people are killed with cars in accidents and guns than in tornadoes. Not all people will evactuate in a hurricane or fire area. We also continue to build in flood areas and earthquake areas.

CatladyOKC, you are right. Many people will be fool hardy no matter how hard others try to protect them. Also the land in the better places (safer? ) may not be a possibility because of job location and price so folks get stuck and can't move. However I do think there should be a certain standard of safety applied to an area b4 builders put up a development, Not that all contingencies can be foreseen of course. Nature is always there to remind us how insignificant our efforts are against its power. I hope you are still doing fine after this last round of storms. We even got tornado warnings a few days ago and we are no where near any "zone". Praying you stay safe.

Well we stayed safe last night, but did have a yard full of limbs on the maple trees & our 30" Fir hit the dust, missed the house by about 5 ft. Didn't even lose any of our utilities. Spend most of today cleaning up the front yard & our son and my husband worked on the pine in the back. Hope this is it for a while now, but may not be. Thanks for thinking of us.

Glad the pine missed you. We have several large ones in the back and a clump of silver maple. Every time there's a high wind I pray it doesn't cause any to fall on the neighbor or us.

I too lived thru 3 Palm Sunday tornadoes. They reversed and went thru town 3 different times. It jumped the church and leveled the VA hospital. We didn't have a HS gym built at the new school yet but the Coleseum worked just as well. My mom collected hail stones the size of baseballs and kept them in the freezer to show family and friends. I never want to have to go thru that again. Every time I hear of a community that has been hit by a tornado, I stop and send my prayers for them. Happened recently in central/southern IN. The town was just gone. How does that happen?

Not looking forward to this spring! We have no public shelters in Moore. The 2 schools are being rebuilt and will have shelters in both of them. The Jr High is getting a new gym & shelter. They hope to have shelter at all the schools here as soon as they can. Thanks to many donations especially Toby Keith and the Thunder NBS Team and many, many others. It is amazing to see how fast they are getting the area rebuilt & most homes are getting shelters. They are building a new 5 story Hospital and until it is done we have a temp emergency one, also the Post Office is up and running again. The recovery seems to be much fast than the one in '99, but we are a larger city now than we were then.

That is GOOD News I mean the funds are there to rebuild. I hope that everyone will be much safer now.

It helps, but it will take time. It is a city of over 60, 000 and has 3 High Schools, 5 Junior Highs, 23 elementry, and 1 alternative school.

Any chance of moving someplace safer? I pray this will be a quiet season and give you all a break. God bless your rebuilding efforts, too.

Any chance of using your big house (present one) as a rental unit and moving out? You could rent it furnished on a seasonal or yearly basis.
CatLadyOKC
Mar 19, 2014
No way! I've seen to much problem with the rental! No I will go thru things when we find what we want and get rid of the rest, I have 2 children that some of the things. We are just in no hurry have lived here since 82 or 83 and never been hit also we hope to get our shelter as soon as they can get to it. We did lose 1 piece of siding in a wind storm, and they are still waiting to get it done, all the good contractors are booked up for now. Don't really know of anyplace in Oklahoma that is any safer!

It's petty hard to find a safe weather place these days. Those tornadoes are hitting most of the states and the ones they don't hit get other stuff.
I know what you mean about the rentals. You need a realtor you can trust to really screen the applicants. We used to rent a house in Long Beach, NY for the school season at a very reasonable price. The renters liked us because we made sure we never damaged anything. We stayed 3 years or so
until my husband got a job upstate near the house we bought and we could move. That was our first house so we did not have the headache of selling first. The selling to buy domino effect can really backfire. BTDT. :-(

You are the first one I've heard from who lived thru those exact tornadoes. I'm so excited. I lived in Marion, Ind and went to church that night. I was 14. We had 3 tornadoes go thru town, reverse, hit again and repeat. 3 tornadoes hit us 3 times. The power went off and we lit candles and put them in the windows. The rest of the night was spent in singing praises to God. The tornado jumped over my church and did major damage to the VA hospital grounds a mile away. I saw an angel that night, a real angel. We had a cross in front of the church made out of old railroad ties. The angel was sitting on one of the arms of the cross. I was not the only one to see him/her. Angels are messengers from God. Was the angel sitting there to give us the message that we were safe or is there a group of guardian angels who keep us safe?

HappyGirl,
I live in Missouri and we have had severe weather and heavy rain
so I know about tornados we live about 65 miles from Joplin and let me tell you it really was heartbreaking to see the utter devestation of a community, it really was a sad day, so many people homeless and lives devestated, but the people are rebuilding and it is better than before thanks to the resilant people of the midwest giving a helping hand.

Really taxing my brain, was back in the late 60's.
Shewrbury's, then out west in new subdivison near Fenton, then last place was Mansion House apts downtown. Then we moved to Collinsville, Ill for the last couple of years. When we split up I moved back to KS. Remarried and lived in KS, until '83 when his company moved us to OK, still here. I worked for Terminix near Hampton Village when I lived in St. Louis. We live in Moore so I'm very familiar with the tornados, but we have some of the best forcasters in the world here.

I visited a prairie dog community on a Western National Parks trip.
They have an elaborate underground home with several/many rooms designated just like ours --- for eating, for sleeping. Every once in a while a head would pop up out of the ground, look around and either disappear again or come out. What fun!

My heart goes out to those in Oklahoma, especially those who lost their children. I feel very fortunate to live here in the far Northwest (Washington State) where the worst we have is the occasional earthquake and a volcano or two!

How is your brother doing, Pixi? Washington is a beautiful state. If ever in Seattle go to Pike's Market! It has nearly everything under the sun there. That is the place where they throw the fish. But you have to order the fish in order for them to throw it. Haven't seen them drop one yet and they have been doing it for many years! My daughter took me there a few years ago. I had a great time. Highly suggest going.

Thanks for the tip, Mountainmama. I'll pass it on to my brother. He has come through the entire radiation therapy without any ill effects but will not know if it eliminated the cancer until they check on July 29 so he won't be going anywhere until then.

Pixipixil - Mountainmama mentions the fish throwing at Pike Place Market. It is fascinating! I am now 80 years old and I went to the Market with my grandmother as a pre-schooler. We went very early in the morning when only the vendors were there, to sell the dahlias my grandfather grew to the flower stalls. They were throwing fish then, however it was to fill orders their fellow fisherman might have. Grandma knew everyone and had told them I was coming to visit - thus I received a little gift at each stall...a piece of candy, a ribbon, a pastry, some juice, etc. What a wonderful memory.

I have not been able to get to the puzzle before now and have been praying that none of our usa puzzlers are caught up in the horror. My prayers are with all who have lost loved ones in this horror may they find the peace of God to bring them through it. God bless you all and keep you safe.

My sister-in-law lives in Missouri and the tornadoes passed close by but did not do any damage to the town where she lives. My mother-in-law also lives in Missouri. She's in a nursing home and the power was knocked out in her town. The home was on emergency generators all day yesterday. Haven't heard reports from there today. I appreciate all of you who prayed and sent good thoughts to them, even if you did not know who your prayers were protecting.

Thanks to you all for the prayers and good thoughts for my daughter's surgery. I do know knee replacement is not a big deal. The difference is, this is MY DAUGHTER! Of course I don't want her to be the only one every to die during knee replacement surgery. Just kidding, I knew that was not going to happen..She came through it fine. Now comes the hard part, watching her in more pain than usual until it heals. I really do appreciate all your prayers and good thought. They really did make it easier for me -- and her, I'm sure.
