Well the month of May decided to live up to its expectations. The most devastating tornado happened yesterday im sure your aware of. It came dangerously close again, but this time, veered off unfortunately to Moore. It is total devastation out there. Its so bad that in neighboring towns such as mine, the power is out, cell service is out, and water is out cause the treatment plant took a huge hit. Luckily the death toll fell quite a bit, and we're hoping it stays low. The saddest part of the whole deal is the poor kids in the school. They had no chance. God be with their little souls.

SO Glad to hear you're OK, Dinobot. I got scared when I heard a tornado hit Oklahoma. I saw pictures, and it looked really bad. Those poor kids!

Glad you're ok, Dinobot. My prayers go out to all those affected in Oklahoma. :cry: Anybody that wants to or can donate be sure and text RED CROSS to 90999 or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY. $10 will be added to your phone bill with the Red Cross text. The Salvation Army number is more open to donate however much you can. A lot of supplies are needed before rebuilding can even be considered.

good to know you are safe Dinobot. I really hate it when bad things happen to innocent children. So sad.

Well I tell you what, I love oklahoma but come on mother nature! This past friday, in a 5 hour time frame we had 8 tornados, and it was absolute hysteria. My trees in the backyard were shredded and my roof was hit a little by the 90+ winds in my neighborhood. In El reno a few towns over, the largest tornado EVER was recorded there. it was an F5 with a base of two and a half miles wide, with winds up to 270 mph! Thank God that most of it was located in fields without too many structures, unfortunately about 11 people including a few storm chasers didnt make it. There were homes taken out, but not as bad as the last big one 2 weeks ago. The month of May wasnt about to go down without a fight. Im wondering why the super surge in these things? I guess thats oklahoma for you.

Somehow, one has to wonder why human makes its settlements on risky areas. You are taking the toll of Oklahoma... And there's also LA, San Francisco just in your country, when it comes to earthquakes, for example.

There are also places close to volcanos, or prone to sink with tidal waves or tsunamis. Nature disasters go on and on.

And yet, you have that amazing ability of the human to overcome that, and get up and start over... Maybe that's why you are in Oklahoma. Hang on, buddy.

I am surrounded by volcanoes where I live. The last active one was Mt St Helens that blew up in 1980. We have had about 2 tornadoes near where I live (at least in my memory). I remember being in 1 small earthquake.
Other than that, Oregon seems to be peaceful

Every land has their dangers and disasters. In the US, we have hurricanes and torrential storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, dormant supervolcanoes, floods, ice storm blackouts, and combinations of the above all throughout our country. I don't really know that there is any one place that is totally safe.

I think the only way we can avoid nature's catastrophes is to not exist at all.

It's also a matter of perspective: Floridians see a hurricane coming and hunker down to wait it out, while we Wisconsinites scratch our heads why they would ever subject themselves to such storms. January rolls around, and the Floridians can't figure out why we'd live in a place that you have to get up and shovel a foot of snow before you can get your car out of the garage and go to work.

Humans will settle in any area they can, it's just our nature, foolhardy or not.
