    Where else? Moore, Oklahoma. The movie theater that got wiped out two years ago just got hit again. I can't imagine the odds against that happening.
    I35 is shut down now. Power lines blown down on the highway.

    Jeeez,...reading about it now. Looks like it was much weaker than the 2013 tornado. Hoping no one got hurt.

    F1 or 2. Tore up some sheds and turned over some cars. Plenty of big hail and some 90-100 mph straight winds. No reports of fatalities.

    There is a set of three giant television/radio antennae in more that survived both the recent F5s that went through Moore recently.
    Two of them went down today. They say that it would take a direct hit by an F3 to do that damage.

    A gymnastics studio was hit, we just learn...

    Not sure if I heard this right but this morning TV weather lady said despite it being the season, none have been reported yet this year.

    Fun fun. The theater was damaged but not wiped out two years ago. The hospital was. This hit just a few blocks south if me again.

    I took my son to drum lessons this evening and missed the bad part by about 15 minutes or so......we were in South Tulsa watching it pass to the north, and it was ugly......a wall cloud passed over us and was doing some nasty swirling. We should have stayed home, where the concrete safe room is.

    My wife, my younger son, and her parents (they live down the street) were in our safe room. The main part of the storm passed a few miles south of our house. There was a lot of heavy rain, some strong straight winds, a bit of hail, but thankfully nothing too damaging.

    Here are a few pics that I took:

    It's spring and that's the season, although March anything is pretty early. May and June are typically the most active months.

    I'm surprise that people want to continue to live that part of the country knowing full well that Tornado's, hurricane's and flooding happen and that part of the USA.

    About 10 miles north We had some pretty stout hail just prior to the Moore touchdown.
    It was about the size of marbles, so I went ahead and reported it as softball sized hail. :bonk
