I spent some significant amount of time (significant for me at least) in Oklahoma last May. I also survived some major weather phenomenon again:From www.srh.noaa.gov:
Several tornadic supercell thunderstorms developed over parts of western and and [sic] much of central Oklahoma on May 24, 2011, with extensive damage occurring over many areas of central Oklahoma.
Highlights included:From www.srh.noaa.gov:
- Twelve tornadoes were confirmed.
- One tornado has been rated EF-5. Two tornadoes were rated EF-4. Two tornadoes were rated EF-3, two EF-2, two EF-1, and three EF-0.
- In addition to the damaging tornadoes, hail sizes reached at least 3″ in diameter.
I made the best of it by tweeting, taking pictures, and foraging for food after it was all clear.From twitter.com:
It’s a mixture of tornado sirens, thunder, and lightening. Insane.
