We had a tornado hit our town last night. EVERYONE ELSE OKAY?

Wondering if everyeone else in the areas are okay. Oklahoma, Missouri, and fellow Arkansas members. Our town has alot of damage. Trees uprooted and placed NOT so gently on top of houses, buildings, cars, etc... Lots of roof damage, etc.... we were woken at 4a.m. by tornado sirens and as I looked out the window, saw the monster tearing across the sky across the street from us. A friend and her 4 yr. old son was killed, no other fatalities that we know of. Just hoping others in the area are okay. check in if you are okay guys and gals!

Wow, I am glad you are OK and saddened by the loss of your friend and son. I had not heard about your tornado yet.

The news said it was rain and wind wrapped, and our winds were in excess of 100+ mph. they are trying to say it's all wind damage, but let me tell you... I saw the monster and it was anything but wind.

Here are some pictures of our damage, and others damage as well.



You can see the clean up crews have been very hard at work since 5a.m. toping the trees that fell into the roads and such.
