Thanks jayabee! I've lived in OK all my life and have been through my fair share of tornadoes!! In fact the apt complex I live in now was rebuilt after they were destroyed by an F5

There's a fella by the name of Roy531 and according to his profile is in OKC, OK. However he hasn't posted here for about 1 or 2 months according to his profile..

I have family there and like you, don't like the tornadoes. Got caught in one across the street from my grandmother's house going along the train tracks when I was 12 and it is soo silent, even when you talk can't hear anything!! I'll take an earthquake any day instead.

I have been in both several times. Didn't like either one. When I lived in norman OK, I worked / ran a flight school. A tornado came through one evening and totally devasted The entire fleet of planes from my school and Ou's fleet and a few private jets. Airplane parts were found 2-3 miles away. Normans tornado center was 1 block from our school and the tornado hit so suddenly that even the warning alarm didn't go off. Blew out every car window, tower bldg windows, storm center windows. It was horrible. We were at the school having a party in the hanger bldg. my car was lifted and moved 1/2 mile away. I had never seen such devastation in my life. Airplanes looked like pencil shavings.

actually I wasn't asking the question posed by Norcal, the original poster, just trying to let her know there was indeed some other folks from "the Sooner". Right now I am temporarily in Milwaukee WI, but will soon go back to where I've been living for a quite a few years, Las Vegas NV
