May 19 and 20 saw several very violent tornadoes sweep actoss central Oklahoma. The scope of the magnitude of destruction here is still being processed; personally, the Moore tornado is perhaps the most violent I have ever experienced either in person of through all of the video I have watched over my lifetime... It was just incredibly, almost unfathomably violent; horrific is the best word I could think of to describe what happened yesterday. For more information on this event, please visit the NWS Norman website at http://www.srh.noaa.gov/oun/?n=events-20130520. Also, please consider a donation to the American Red Cross, or a local charity dedicated to helping the victims of these recent events.

Re:Update on May 19-20 tornado outbreak in Oklahoma: EF-5 rating in Moore, OK

Moore Oklahoma is getting a lot of media attention- and with good reason. However, as the posted videos show, there were many tornadoes, including the one in Shawnee, which aren't getting coverage as they are smaller town America in Texas and Oklahoma. I wonder how much damage they suffered, and how they are faring in the aftermath of the tornado outbreak.
My prayers are with all of those affected by the storms.
