Yesterday was a crazy day in Oklahoma City. I live north of there now, but I lived there for many years and am very involved in the goings-on there.
So much rain fell in such a short time that Oklahoma City and much of the surrounding area flooded – I mean “FLOODED”!! Power outages, people climbing up to their roofs to get away from the water in their houses, businesses closing, cars floating down the streets!
Here are some videos from the local ABC television station – KOCO.
Snowstorms, ice storms, hailstorms, earthquakes, tornadoes, flooding! What’s up with that?!?
Oklahoma weather is definitely versatile.
I’m so sorry to hear this.
I’m really sorry for those poor people who have to start all over again! How dreadful for them. All these natural disasters of late do seem to be increasing. I saw the following earlier this morning:
Sun’s strange behavior baffles astronomers: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37705466/ns/technology_and_science-space/?gt1=43001
Many strange things.
Oh dear! Positive thoughts for those poor people…
Yes – they need many positive thoughts.
Amazing weather patterns lately . . .
Maybe it is the Earth trying to rid itself of a detrimental parasite by shrugging us off.
I guess that’s a possibility. 🙂
I’m fortunate and glad that I live on a hill!!!!!
So true! Hurray for positives.
That is dreadful….hope there are no fatalities.
I’m not aware of any fatalities. I saw one report that said there were 136 people with injuries.
I recently read somewhere about all these recent natural disasters, where the writer referred to the earth giving ‘a global shrug of protest at mankind’.
My thoughts are with everyone in Oklahoma at this time.
I’m afraid the cleanup and recovery is going to be horrendous for many. Keep the good thoughts. 🙂
