Massive Oklahoma Twister.

Post #1 by tidybrown » Tue May 21, 2013 2:31 am

Here is some staggering footage of the immense tornado that hit Oklahoma overnight. Apparently at some point during the 45 minute duration and destruction, this twister had a diameter of 2 miles!!!

Here's a video courtesy of CBS news.

Can someone please explain why they don't build with brick in the hurricane alley? They too probably would have been flattened by this immense beast. But other 'lesser' tornados surely would do less damage compared to a house made of timber...
