MAJOR TORNADO WARNING FOR CENTRAL OKLAHOMA
— Ace

Take shelter.

Awful. Good luck, Oklahoma readers. Get some books and candles and food and get into a basement. *


* I assume this is good advice. If it's not, please ignore me.

It's fairly good advice, but I'd sub out "candles" for "flashlights."

 

If you have a storm shelter you may want to be there.

Yup.  Not entirely bad advice.  I would add:  "Pray".

Heh, Where I live in MO that's the corner that takes the beating as all our storms tend to come out of the southwest. (If they're ever moving from the North East Instead...Pray.)

12 You go to the SW corner so the debris blows over your head if the hose gets slammed. Also, something about leaving some windows open so the rapid pressure drop doesn't cause the house to explode.

Posted by: fluffy at May 31, 2013 12:55 PM (z9HTb)

13 Technically, the advisory is for a WATCH and not a tornado WARNING.  afaik, WARNING means one has actually developed and reported.  WATCH is for conditions for tornados to develop.

29 Very good advice, Ace. fluffy, they have dropped the southwest corner of the basement advice in favor of under the stairs or a strong piece of furniture in the basement, to protect against falling debris. Take a flashlight and your cell phone, too.

35 No candles - possibility of a gas leak - use flashlights

Don't open the windows - it's myth it will keep your house from exploding

Bring tough shoes to the shelter - in case you're walking on debris afterward

Bring a laptop for the updates and radar and your cell phone and the chargers

Bring water - lots in case you need it afterward - snacks too

41 That dark red line on the I-70 corridor in MO doesn't look too nice. Prayers indeed. I live on the east side of the state, and the weather has been volatile for a week. The wind has been whipping out of the south for days, super charged atmosphere. The temp is supposed to crash this weekend too, and that line of transition is usually not a good place to be.

47 Also, something about leaving some windows open so the rapid pressure drop doesn't cause the house to explode. Saw some show recently where an insurance company examined that idea. They do have a vested interest in things that save them money. They set up thousands of fans (exaggerated detail, I don't remember the number) directed at two homes. One had front door open, the other closed. The house with the front door open was fucking leveled. Blown off the foundation. I think it's better to keep the doors and windows closed and go down. Way down.

48 Tornado warnings are now becoming national headlines. Would some one please talk about the correlation between tornado warnings and actual touchdowns/damage/injuries/death? Cause it just isn't happening. We'll have soon have reporters jumping in the air, trying to show the viewers how they were swept away by 60 mile an hour winds when the warnings don't result is catastrophic images.

64 Can an Oklahoman or Texan verify something for me?

I was talking to my dad this past weekend and he was telling me that the ground conditions in those states make it virtually impossible to have a basement in your home.

He said that you would have to blast a hole in the ground with dynamite, build your basement, and run water into the ground around your foundation in perpetuity just to keep the ground from caving your basement walls in.

There any truth to this? Obviously I'm asking because if basements are rare in OK... well, that's not good.

The way my daughter, in the corner of tornado alley remembers it is easy. 'Watch' has fewer letters. It is step #1. 'Warning' is step #2 , has more letters, and means get her ass, and her kids, in the basement.

Um,  no.  We do have swimming pools.  (No dynamite needed.)  Our cows love them.  It's a big state so there are a lot of soil types.  With the dark clay soil in the area I live in you do have to run water around the foundation to keep it from shrinking when it dries and effing up your foundation.  Not too many basements though.  A few friends have them.  I wish we did.

Yeah, it's true...for a lot of areas of Oklahoma.

 

There are ribbons of different types of geological strata...ranging from hard bedrock to clay to sand.

 

We have just about every color of soil, here in OK.

Rocky outcroppings are pretty common.

 

And even where there are no visible signs of bedrock...you dig down a foot, and it's there.

 

There are also lots of natural springs, which is a good thing...but you don't want one springing up in your basement.

Posted by: wheatie at May 31, 2013 01:20 PM (CnFRK)

89 48 - Jack, A tornado WATCH means conditions are favorable for a tornado forming. A tornado WARNING means a trained tornado spotter has reporter has seen a tornado on the ground. They also issue warnings if a rotation is seen on doppler radar, which is good for advanced warning, but a funnel is technically not a tornado until it touches the ground. Currently, in Oklahoma, they are under a tornado watch right now. The reason they are giving it extra emphasis is that the conditions that meteorologists are seeing today would cause a larger, more dangerous tornado if one forms.
