Sorry...I'm glued to the tv. Can't get away to post the pic. My brother and his family are in Moore Oklahoma. They are ok. They just closed on their first home. Not sure if there is any damage to the house yet.
Huge tornado hit Moore which is a suburb of OKC. Traveling north east. Shawnee was hit today which was also hit yesterday. They are saying its just as devastating as Joplin Missouri tornado a couple years ago. There is a school that has a possibility of having as many as 2 dozen deaths at an elementary school.
Omg so scary !!! My hubby mom used to live in joplin but she moved there right after that tornadeo hit but I saw the damage to the joplin area I was speechless...wow 2 dozen children at an elemantary school so sad :(( well happy that your family memebers are safe
Just finally got to talk to my brother. His fil house that they have been staying at til they got a house has damage but still standing. The house across the street wasn't so lucky. Most of the block is leveled. My brother being military also was first responder in area. He said it reminded him of the devastation after a bomb has hone off in an urban area.
Thanks. They are hoping to head back to the house to secure what is left and gather supplies. Talked to my brother Monday night. They ended up out driving it since they didn't have a shelter. My sis in law is shell shocked. The schools are cancelled forthe rest of the year. So at least the kids will be home. Wing military, my brother was also a first responder. Had a rough go od it by finding a death.HHe said it reminded him of the muddle east after bombs hit. Think the stress caused contractions. Just refused to go in to L&D. Seem to be ok this morning.
Thanks so much. I will pass the word on. Although I.think my family is trying to induce me via stress. I went 45 min last night not.knowing if my parents happened to go to Burlington where we had that bridge collapse on I5. They live 20 min away and shop there all the time. 2 scares in one week is too much. Think I can go to Hawaii or something to relax?
So yesterday when President Obama was in Moore seeing the damage, my brother was chosen to meet him. His family also was able to get pics taken with him. Also the military newspaper will be running the story on how he survived with his family. So if anyone is military, keep an eye out for the paper.
