Yes, as we speak, there is a Super Tornado ravaging the country. It's flattened a small town, and caused widespread damage in Oklahoma City. That is all, for now.

Our power was out for six hours last night because lightning hit a transformer some 750 miles away from us. It was one hell a storm if it did that.

i was wondering (not just this topic but also when i saw it on the news) is this really news?
the area is known for tornado's during the tornado season. it's been like that forever. so what is the big news fuss about? we all know this happens there.
people went living there by themself. it's **** for them they lost everything and maybe some lifes are lost. but they knew it could happen when they started to live there. it's a risk they were willing to take. so why the cry now? =S
but most of all... why is this on the news? it isn't news.

There weren't any mass shootings or interesting murders this week, so weather moves up the list.

Where are people getting 91? This isn't the first I've seen the number.

Where are people getting 91?

Early reports gave much higher figures:

During the overnight hours of May 20"21, mixed reports had indicated that 91 fatalities took place;[14] however, on the morning of May 21, the medical examiner's office stated that only 24 bodies had been received and the previously reported toll was the result of double reports.[13]

We can take this thread unto another level and discuss the imbalance of American news items in global news pipelines, or we can just be like the rest of the internet and offer prayers that do nothing.
