My husband’s jobsite is in Moore. It shifted just east of him at the last minute. We got hit yesterday in Edmond with tornadoes and hail.

I love Oklahoma, except when things like this happen. :(.

 

There are children trapped in schools under debris. It Makes me so sad.

My cousins house was completely demolished last night. Not 100% where she lives but I think it’s near Edmonton. Thank goodness she and her two babies and her husband were in a shelter but their house is gone. So sad.

@MrsMaskatoBe:  I know… we’re watching an OKC news station and it said that two schools were destroyed and they are currently trying to get third graders out of the rubble.

I hope everyone is ok – my thoughts are with anyone who needs them. The footage is heart breaking.

I heard about the schools, and I thought thank goodness it’s a long weekend.  I guess it isn’t in the US though Cry

The tornado passed less than two miles from me. We were able to see it when we crawled out of the shelter. We fit 11 people in a 3 person shelter with 3 dogs and 1 cat. It’s so tragic to hear about Plaza Towers, it breaks my heart.

I had to turn off the news because this is so absolutely heartbreaking.  My heart breaks for anyone who has been affected by this string of tornados!  Sending lots of prayers out tonight.

My hometown… luckily, as far as I know, all friends and family are safe. But it is absolutely heartbreaking to know people who lost their homes and to see the footage of the demolished schools. I tried to get to my parent’s house (it is in tact, and surprisngly they still have power) but we couldn’t get anywhere close.

Hope all of my other Okie Bees are safe. Thoughts and prayers are with you, and hope to do something tangible tomorrow, whether it be donating or volunteering. Not quite sure where to go/what to do without being in the way. I feel like I have more responsibility than a 10 dollar donation through a Red Cross text…
