Feeling for Oklahoma

I'm sure I can speak for all my fellow Australians on the forum when I say we are deeply shocked and saddened by the absolute devastation seen there on our news broadcasts, and our hearts go out to those directly and indirectly affected by those ferocious tornados. Nature can indeed be very cruel.

The scale of the devastation is unbelievable, seems to go on for miles.

Been watching the news all morning. An F-4 that was two miles wide at times, and stayed on the ground for 45 minutes?! What a monster. What can one do but donate? With so many resources going into the area and not even having the basic utilities for's better for the victims if no-pros to keep out of the area and leave the trucked-in supplies for the people who need them.

I just received a phone call confirming that all of my family in the vicinity where spared any physical harm or damage. Many of their neighbors and loved ones however lost everything including some lives.

May their souls rest in peace.
