Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the devastating tornado that tore through the suburbs of Oklahoma City today, and if you’re looking for loved ones or simply need a way of letting everyone know you’re safe, check out the Red Cross’ Safe & Well site.
The two-mile wide tornado reached speeds of approximately 200 miles per hour and experts note that conditions are still ripe for more serious weather in the Midwest.
As reported at CNN:
Even as authorities and rescue workers struggle to get handle on the damage, NOAA’s [Bill] Bunting warned the worst may be yet to come.
“These storms are going to continue producing additional tornadoes. They’ll also produce some very, very large hail, perhaps larger than the size of baseballs. We’re also concerned that there may be an enhanced and widespread damaging wind threat with storms as they merge together,” he said.
“As bad as today is, this is not over yet.”
