Oklahoma Tornadoes - Page 2

The mayor of tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma says he'll try to get an ordinance passed requiring storm shelters or safe rooms in new housing projects. "I have six councilmen and I need four votes to get it passed," Mayor Glenn Lewis told CNN today.

The mammoth EF5 tornado hit the town Monday, killing 24 people, including 9 children, and wrecking 2,400 homes. Very few residents had access to a storm shelter.

"Probably less than one tenth of one percent" Of the houses in Moore are built with basements, said Mike Hancock, president of Basement Contractors in Edmond, Oklahoma. But Hancock and other experts say affordable shelters are feasible.

An above-ground shelter runs $8,000 to $10,000; a small basement would cost $15,000 to $20,000; and a concrete cellar built during new-house construction would cost as little as $2,200, said Mike Barnett, a custom homebuilder in the area for 37 years. Ref. CNN

EF5 Tornado - Widest Tornado

The National Weather Service upgraded the deadly tornado that struck near Oklahoma City late last week to a top-of-the-scale EF5, and said the twister's 2.6-mile width is the widest ever recorded in the U.S. The Oklahoma City area has seen two extremely rare EF5 tornadoes in less than a month.

Oklahoma Tornadoes - Page 2

It's that time of the year again! Tornadoes are wrecking havoc all over the state. And I kid you not, I am typing this from the bar area at work while we hid in our beer storage. It seems that we do this at least three times a month during April amd May. Ive expereinced storms before, and it was my sophmore year in highschool when the 2013 tornado hit Central Moore, about 5 blocks away from the school itself. I will just have to make sure to request days off from work so I can voulenteer and help clean up this mess, as I usually do about this time every single year.
