    Yes, that is horrible. Please keep them in your prayers.

    We are just getting hammered in Omaha right now. Tornadoes everywhere.

    KETV is reporting at least 4 confirmed fatalities. Tragic. Reporter saying they are hearing more than 4, but only 4 confirmed deaths, up to 50 injured. Keep them in your prayers.

    good God, I was just imagining a few days ago what it would have been like if a tornado hit back when I was in scout camp.

    Keep them in your prayers.

    Wow, that camp is about a half hour from where I grew up.

    That storm has just settled in and doesn't seem to be moving. I have a small river running down the side of my yard from all the runoff from the houses around me.

    This is making me feel sick to my stomach. And it is probably all little kids too.

    Some of you need to update your profiles to include the city you're in, so when ya say "x is happening here" we know where you're talking about. :)

    96 boys at the camp - ages 13 to 17. It was a leadership program outing. Reports are that people took shelter, but all building at the camp were destroyed. I've camped there in the past. The valleys and ridges just seem to funnel and amplify even normal winds. There likely was no safe place to be when something like this hit.

    I agree. They probably didn't even have time to take cover. I can't even imagine it.

    Just found out one of my employee's son was at the camp. My son went to this camp several years ago.
