Subject: Tornado went across south end of my town!!!

We have had an exciting/scary/nerve-racking night!!! I live just north of Tulsa, OK. A tornado passed about 3 miles from my house on the south end of my town!!! My Mom came down to our house, so she wouldn't be by herself. She has a cellar, but it is leaking and has standing water in it right now. There is a newer housing addition on the south end of town that has tornado damage, but everything here is fine!!! Scary there for a while!!!
I bet we get that water pumped out of the cellar tomorrow!!! Since Mom and Dad got the cellar a zillion years ago when I was just a kid, this is the closest a tornado actually has gotten to us and we couldn't use it!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know we're OK in OK!!!

Hi Patty,

Thank God you are all safe.

The photo sure shows how close that Tornado was to your home... I can't imagine seeing that coming and how panicked you must of been just knowing it was just blocks away.

I would be sure to get that water pumped out and soon...since you never know what's coming your way in Oklahoma.

Stay Safe My Friend and Glad You're All Fine!

Hugs and Love- Joann

So very thankful that you and your loved ones are safe. Those tornadoes are such scary things and do so much damage. There is still a lot of tornadoes in the forecast today (Thursday March 31) from what we are hearing on the news. Stay safe.

Thanks, Joann and Linda!!! Yeah, it was too close for comfort to say the least!!! There was quite a bit of damage to a newer housing addition on the south end of town...mostly houses that were being built. One that was being built and had the roof already on, just collapsed in on itself!!! I would guess that most of those houses have home storm shelters as they are a newer area and the houses are quite expensive!!! A lot of them had roof damage.

Oh, by the way, we got the cellar pumped out the next day and it is currently air-drying out!!! Hoping to get some sealer for the cracks and painting sealer on the walls of it for next time it's needed!!!
Patty
