Tornado damage north of Tulsa - Grand Lake areas.

Saw a pic of a large tornado north of Joplin

Month of May 49 tornadoes in Oklahoma, think they said the state averages 50 some tornadoes in per year, about to get a years worth in 1 month.

Showing homes being washed away along rivers in the state.

News just said mandatory evacuations of Weber Falls because of the runaway barges, those that refuse have been told to write their names on their body for identification.

And tomorrow my area is supposed to be the target zone

Fairly large tornado hits Jeff City

Not sure of the damage or if any fatalities. After sun rise, better pictures of the damage will emerge.

As of now, there are three fatalities. Damage is severe in many areas. News said they will update info as available.

Prayers for all involved.

Quoted: "And the weather is not getting more extreme?".

Nope! Ignore the panic inducing hyperbole by the current "weather men/women"...who, just as the "news anchors" do...attempt to cause panic, raise blood pressure, and FRIGHTEN you enough to GIVE UP SOMETHING...

Let's talk tornados/weather", ok?.

WAY BACK in 1925, what is called the Tri-State Tornado, which went through parts of Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana on March 18. It is considered an F5, even though tornadoes were not ranked on any scale at the time. It holds records for longest path length at 219 miles (352 km), longest duration at about 3½ hours, and fastest forward speed for a significant tornado at 73 mph (117 km/h) anywhere on Earth. In addition, it is the deadliest single tornado in United States history with 695 fatalities. Get THAT?? Six Hundred Ninety-Five fatalities....can you imagine the MASS HYSTERIA that would generate today by both the mass Main Stream Media and certain polticians?? They would be denouncing YOU and your automobile, you air conditioning, your standard of living, your eating of cows, your raising cattle...and DEMANDING that you give them up IMMEDIATELY or be the cause of the "world ending"...maybe even BEFORE 12 years!!! Funny...but there were very few automobiles on the roads, very few paved highways, no interstates, no "gas guzzling" SUV's...and no air conditioning...hmmmm...interesting dilemma for the "Anti's" and the "Give-It-Up's", wouldn't you say?

Or.. how about the 1974 Super Outbreak, which affected a large area of the central United States and extreme southern Ontario in Canada on April 3 and April 4, 1974. This monster storm produced 148 tornadoes in only 18 hours, with a huge number of them were violent; 7 were of F5 intensity and 23 were F4. During the peak of this outbreak there were 16 tornadoes on the ground at the same time. More than 300 people, possibly as many as 330, were killed by tornadoes during this outbreak.

However, THIS record was later broken during the 2011 Super Outbreak, which resulted in 360 tornadoes and 324 fatalities...but still not as many killed as way back in 1925. Hmmmm...again...what a quagmire some find themselves in...

And then there was the F5 Bridge Creek–Moore tornado on May 3, 1999 in the southern Oklahoma City metro area, a Doppler on Wheels situated near the tornado measured winds of 302 ± 22 mph. This is, so far, the highest wind speeds observed on Earth.

Lets dwell upon the FIRST CONFIRMED tornado and first tornado FATALITY in present-day United States:
August 1671 - Rehoboth, Massachusetts:
July 8, 1680 - Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1 person killed.
Hmm...nary an air conditioner, SUV, or oil derrick to be seen way back in the late 1600's...hmmm...hmmm...

As for most amount of people killed OUTSIDE of the United States... The deadliest tornado in (modern, known, RECENT) world history was the Daulatpur–Saturia tornado in Bangladesh on April 26, 1989, which killed approximately 1,300 people.That was huge, even for a country that, in its history, has had at least 19 tornadoes that have killed more than 100 people each.

Again, if this event happened now, there would be 24/7 saturation of panic inducing, gut wrenching fear mongering, and political demands GLOBALLY for all the civilized, industrial nations to cease immediately with their standard of living, and go back to what more or less would equate to mid 15th-17th century squalor and misery. Never mind that since these historical events have occured, from 1925-1989...air conditioning useage has increased, world population has increased, automobile numbers have increased, more fossil fuel useage has increased...yet...none of these records have been eclipsed in all the decades hence.

So, turn of the weather people hysterical blather...do not listen to their fear mongering...prepare of the NATURAL occurrence of tornado's, hurricanes, cyclones, earthquakes, floods, heat-drought, cold, blizzards, and other planet earth weather...that has existed since time immortal....prepare the best you can...and never give up your freedom or comforts in exchange for the implied "safety" and "panic" that certain people pontificate on...you realize, btw...that throughout history, these type of people have NEVER lowered their standard of living or comfort level...only the masses of "little" people they preside over.

waiting, just waiting. supposed to get bad early to mid afternoon in the Texas Panhandle and move in here later, we are right on the edge of the tornado threat area, more in the hail and wind area. we've been lucky this week just rain severe stuff has been to our east but it looks like it's shifting back our way, the NWA has us drawn in for severe weather for the next 4 days in a row.

lot of roads washed out, bridges ect in this area but pretty mild compared to what others have dealt with.

another day another tornado watch, what is this about the 10th day in a row for somewhere in Oklahoma a watch being issued.

I'm right in the middle of this one, funny thing is it don't feel like severe weather, yesterday it did, warm, muggy, humid feeling, today off and on light rain, cool temps.

Anyone see that big monster tornado yesterday in the Texas Panhandle? that sucker was nasty, mostly over open grass land but took out a few farm houses, not just damaged them nasty but wiped them out clear down to the foundation nasty.

reading on another forum the NE parts of Oklahoma really bad flooding taking place, not getting the attention it should due to all the tornado coverage but it sounds pretty bad over there.

Exclamation Something doesn't pass the smell test

I have been watching the weather patterns this spring and something over the past week or so struck me. Many of the storm-chaser pictures of the tornadoes look almost like CG special effects from a Hollywood movie and the repeated damage to not only structures but also food crops has set off my "spidey sense".

I know it sounds far out, but is it possible that some state actors have figured out how to weaponize the weather?

Not saying that's what going on, but...
