Tornadoes in Oklahoma

The vicious twister that hit Moore has left destruction and death unlike most that we witness. Some areas of town are almost unrecognizable.

My one close-up experience with a tornado was back in the 80's in Minneapolis.  A big twister was racing across the metro, and after chewing up our neighborhood, we caught a break as it lifted just a bit before touching back down and destroying parts of town. We could hear the monster roar that many equate with a freight train going over your head.  After it passed, we saw hundreds of trees down, numerous homes, businesses and apartments damaged, a city bus thrown into a building...but, we were alive.

Our prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy.
