Most definitely. Between tornados and the Murrah bombing, we survive.

On a sad note, the news is saying that in one of the schools that were hit, they have gone from search and rescue to search and recover. Unconfirmed reports of 11 children drowned and most likely they will find the remaining 13 in the same condition. Sad day here.

I heard the reporter on the scene breakdown when he gave that announcement. It just rips ones heart out to hear that!

But you are correct! You do survive! I was living in Ft Worth in 99, and I would drive through OKC going back to Iowa to visit family. It wasn't very long, and you couldn't even tell there was a Tornado. I'm referring to the area around 35.

Yeah, we rebuild fast. Unfortunately this will be the second time since '99 that that particular area of I-35 has been hit. Once in 2003 and now today.

On a weird note, my business is probably going to pick up. I produce an OKC street guide and my busiest months are just after natural disasters. Chances are I'll be working with FEMA in the next couple of days/weeks, and a lot of out-of-state'rs too. I will do everything I can to help the emergency response organizations.

The blue circle is my old house. It's leveled.

The red is the elementary school where so many of those kids passed and many are still trapped.

The green is Little River DGC.

The white is the central path of the tornado where everything is leveled. So odd to see.

Good God, this is Joplin all over again. Just heard that there are 91 fatalities so far.

And I hate losing a course in this manner, but that sort of loss is miniscule against massive loss of life here, particularly the loss of two dozen schoolchildren.

Prayers to all our OKC area folks.

Death toll has been dropped to like 24....so that's some good news.

Crazy devastation.

I drove thru Moore 4 times in two days back in Oct '12 and immediately thought "I know where that is".
My thoughts are with everyone having to endure this tragic event.
