I live in Oklahoma and was just wondering if anybody was hit by the tornadoes around here last night. And if you did, do you need anything? I know what these things can do so dont hesitate to ask for help.

Im over here in Arkansas, between Fort Smith & Russellville, & all we got was wind out the butt & more rain... which my yard doesnt need.

I think OK & parts of Texas were the only really hard hit places. I over heard a few folks saying they had some downed trees across the river.

Is it Tornado season already? I remember when I used to live down in OK those things were not to be trifled with.

No, it's not tornado season yet, but in reality they happen at all times of the year. Last year, I watched a tornado one day then watched it snow the next. This is going to be one of those screwy years, I fear. It's been 70's and 80's for a good bit of the winter, with VERY cold breaks in between. The last two weeks have felt more like April around here than February.

I was in Tulsa for a conference when this happened. It was pretty hairy for awhile, but all we got was some heavy rain, some flooding and hail. A small town got hit pretty hard though. Something like 8 people (I think) were killed, maybe?
