    Re: Oklahoma Tornadoes

    Pretty wild.... I just heard them refer to this as a "Tornado Emergency" - as if that were a categorization. Is that worse than a "Tornado Warning"? I've never heard of such a thing.

    Tornado emergency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A Tornado Emergency is enhanced wording of tornado warnings used by the National Weather Service (NWS) in the United States during significant tornado occurrences in highly populated areas. Although not a new warning type from the NWS, instead issued in a Severe Weather Statement (or in rare cases, in the initial Tornado Warning), a Tornado Emergency generally means that significant, widespread damage is expected to continue and a high likelihood of numerous fatalities is expected with a large, strong to violent tornado.[1]

    Yes, this is actually much worse than a tornado warning. I had to look this up on Wiki...

    Trying to figure out of the kids were still in the school(s) completely obliterated by the tornado. Helicopter pilot above the scene doesn't even know the status of his own family.

    they've got a helicopter going over the path...........just nothing left standing. Gosh I hope those kids are safe. One of the weathermen on air showed that the tornado went a block north of his house.

    Ok, so the 3D radar on the Weather channel showing the tornado is pretty damn cool.

    this guy interviewing a guy who lost his ranch is just horrible. Absolutely terrible. "you got some dead horses?" after introducing him as the owner he asks "so you own this farm here?"
