 On Sunday, in Oklahoma City there was a terrible tornado and was known as a long-track wedge tornado. The tornado was not like any other tornado because it was way more stronger, it was going at a speed of 200mph. The tornado that hit Oklahoma City was i mile wide, there was warnings day before it had occurred.
      There was 110 people that were found by rescuers and there was 120 people that were wounded. President Obama had signed a emergency disaster, they have been getting loans for the initial cost of damage. The tornado destroyed 16 Oklahoma counties, this tornado was crazy and very huge.
      I think that it sad for the people that live in Oklahoma because everything that they had got destroyed and they don't have anything anymore. I also think that it is sad that some kids died because of this and it had happened while they were in school, everyone thought that it was going to be a normal tornado but it wasn't, it was a very strong tornado that wiped out anything in its past. I also think that it is sad because for the families out there and because I have a friend that moved down here from Oklahoma City and they are trying to reach their family members.

   A tornado hit Oklahoma city, this was not just an ordinary tornado but destroyed many homes and it also hit two elementary school. MAny people lost their lives, at least 50 or 51 lives were taken away and many where injured. Moore was also hit by a tornado but it was not as bad as the one that occurred in Oklahoma city. This is not the fist tornado in Oklahoma but this is the third. This tornado was bigger and faster, and it caused everyone their to loose everything they had.
 Nine children were killed, I can not imagine the parents of those children what they might be going through, i mean we all know it is not easy to lose someone that we truly love, especially when it comes to your children. You raised them you loved them you helped them fight through every obstacle they faced and now they are gone. That's just sad.
 I hope people from Oklahoma, can recover i know it is going to be really tough, I know if i lost someone i loved, my house my clothes, the shoes on my feet i would feel like there is nothing to look forward to. I mean i really appreciate the food, clothes and the roof that i have over my head. And having that taken away in minutes can be devastating, horrific, sad, and terrifying, I hope people from Oklahoma can help those victims recover. I wish their homes were given back to them.

  Oklahoma City got hit by a unusual tornado. They say it wasn't a normal tornado. The Tornado that hit Glasbury, Texas was nothing compared to the one that hit Oklahoma for many reasons. Like i said it wasn't a normal tornado and the one in texas wasn't as bad aas this one.
  24 people including 9 children were killed during this unusual tornado. They had called a lookout or whatever they call it because they knew a tornado was going to hit, but little did they know it wasn't ordinary. 12o people were badly injured with many destroyed homes. The tornado must have caused big money to this people. What are they going to do to fix there homes and what was damaged. Tornadoes are nature and there isn't anything we can do to prevent them just advise the people when one is coming.
 I think its bad because i dont know what there going to do. Whoes going to give them money to fix there homes and all that. So all my prayers go out to these people.

  Oklahoma city got hit by a big tornado and at least 24 people including nine children were killed when a massive tornado struck an area outside Oklahoma City. At least seven of those children were killed at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma, police said. Emergency personnel on Tuesday continued to scour the school's rubble a scene of twisted I-beams and crumbled cinder blocks. The tornado was estimated to be at least two miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore, in the southern part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
  101 people were found by rescuers that went looking for survivors. President Obama signed emergency disaster.There will be loans and initial cost to rebuild. There was a warning in advance to this tornado a couple days before.Kids screamed for their parents and parents hollered their children's names, walking and searching in panic in the parking lot of Briarwood Elementary in Moore, Oklahoma. The tornado that wrecked their town had just left. The sky behind them was still dark. Rain fell in a light mist.

   The tornado that hit Glasbury, Texas was nothing compared to the one that occurred recently in the City of Moore, Oklahoma on Sunday May.19,2013.. This tornado was really bad it took a lot of lives it destroyed a lot of homes and it also hit two elementary school. At least, 51 lives were token away and 120 were badly injured. Seeing these video clips of seeing families suffer it touches your heart, because you see what they went through and they lost everything due to the tornadoes it just crushes your heart.

   This is the 3rd tornado that has happen in Oklahoma there been one back i 1999,2003,and 2013 they were all devastating to see. I give my deep condolences to all the brave souls who over came this terrible tornado. Hopefully, President Obama & the Mayor of Moore, Oklahoma really help established this community to back how it was and the Red Cross does it's part to provide hot meals and clothing to the survivors. I feel really bad for the children who had to go through this terrible experience,because it can be very terrifying and horrifying in the same time.

   Hopefully, the community establishes really fast and goes back to one peace but it won't never feel the same. One brave teacher from one elementary is really she saved 6 little children she is a brave soul. Also, a little girl who was 7 to 8 years old got hit by a lighting strike hopefully no damage was done to her. I can't imagine how it would feel to go through this seriously it's a scary experience hopefully another tornado like this never occurs again.

There was a big tornado that hit in texas and people got hurt and some died and it is really sad that good people died because of the dam tornado those things and no need to have them they dont help us so have them in the world.

      People keep think thinking that it is ok to have they happen like not that much then other people say they happen all the time and they do in oklahoma they happen a lot I have family up there said that it happen all the time and it is not right.'

      People dont no why we need to have tornado because we really dont need them at all but they keep happen all the time in the summer to but in the winter that is the days that you dont want to be there in those day because they are really scard to look at my mom was in one and did'nt like it.

Nature could be very revealing with, nature could be very easy coming with us, nature could be catastrophic, brutal, and beautiful. A unusually wide tornado hit Oklahoma, Texas. It is a view to see these giant monsters that contain thousands of wind power. The number one natural disaster that I would love to see go off would be a volcano. This tornado is different because It's wider than any other tornado. This shows you what the world well come to be (a wast land). The world well come to a waste land with a giant wall surrounding a city and dirt covering part of the city. People would be killing one another for food and shelter. A tornado is formed when hot wind and cold wind chase each other. Homes were destroy'd and people were killed. This tornado has taken more than homes and lives but peace of wind aswel. Nature is a beauty to stare at but keep your distance because you could get hurt. nature tempts to show its true face allot. Nature is brutal with us because she testes us. yet we love nature when its catastrophic. I find nature very beautiful but deadly like a cobra.

   This tornado was different than the one that hit in Texas because it was way bigger and faster, event though this one didn't last as much as the one in Texas it made similar if not more damage. The one in Texas was pretty long and made many damage, but it wasn't as strong as the one in Oklahoma. They also said that the one in Oklahoma was very strong that the only way you could of not ended up hurt was if you were in a underground basement. This one took down everything that was in its path vehicles, trailers, homes, and even schools.
   The tornado in Oklahoma was going at 200mph which is faster than the one in Texas and it destroyed much more too, it took most of the buildings down and hurt more people too. Well I think that it was bigger because it happend later and it is much hotter, which gives the tornado more power.
   Well I really don't understand how tornadoes work, I think that its when hot and cold air are close together or something like that so I think that since its hotter in Oklahoma right now thats why the tornado hit there.

This tornado has been a major blo to the state of Oklahoma.Literally this tornado has been one of the most devistating storms that has hit the state of Oklahoma.Oklahoma Representative James lankford was on the news with chuck tod and told the newsman that this tornando damage was very bad and that the tornado was what they call a large wedged tornado.The congressman said that thankfully the devistation was not as bad as it could have been and it hit mostly in a rural area.

  Meteorologist said that this tornado was at least 1 mile wide in diameter and well that is pretty big. The local police men and service people said that they would continue searching to see if there are any more survivors that have not be found.THe only other tornado that cost 1 million dollars in damage in the history of Oklahoma was the Bridge Creek-Moore tornado.This tornado caused 36 deaths 583 injured and there were 8,132 homes destroyed or damaged.

The bridge creek tornado cost 1.4 billion dollars and was the fourth costliest tornado in U.S. History.PResident Obama signed a emergency disaster form which gives automatic assistance to all of those who need it. THe army and other government people were sent out to help scater the debris and find missing people.Even tho i do not live over there I am still happy that people are alive and with there families.

  This tornado was crazy and just amazing to see. Almost all of the whole place was torn apart. They say that the tornado was about 1 mile long that's pretty long. The tornado had more than 120 or maybe more.

   After the tornado hit rescuers found about 101 people. President Obama signed a paper for the tornado and it was called the Emergency Disaster. The EF of the tornado was 4 or 5. Texas got loans to rebuild all the damage that the tornado made. I just hope that this don't happen again to any state or country or whatever.

I fee bad for the people out there because they lost everything.

     This tornado was catastrophic and just so crazy to see. This was a HUGE tornado and I love to see things like this except the fact that I know they do so much damage. This must have been spinning I don't know how fast but it was fast! It is sad though because many people died in this tornado and RIP to those people who died in that devastation. Oklahoma, Texas is where this disaster happened.
     This tornando they said was to be 1 mile wide in diameter and that is huge. There was more than 120+ wounded and that is a lot of people. 101 people were found by rescuers that went looking for survivors. President Obama signed emergency disaster. There will be loans and initial cost to rebuild. There was a warning in advance to this tornado a couple days before.
     This happend on Sunday on May 19, 2013 and that will be a day to remember. The tornando was going about 220MPH and that is really fast. 51 people were dead and and I can't believe that because I thought they had got a warning. Well I hope that everything goes well over there and I just wonder what will happen over here. I am afraid that a big earthquake will hit us and it will not be pretty.

A deadly tornado terrorized a small Oklahoma town last night. The Tornado is responsible for the deaths of numerous school children. Meteorologists said that the strength of these tornados is great deal more potent than this region is accustomed to. Experts suggest that the repair costs could run into the tens of billions, which might be beyond FEMA's financial reach.

Hopefully the residents of these affected towns can collaborate towards a full recovery. Of course recovery may take a very long time, especially when FEMA is designated to aide of these unfortunates.
