Officials in Oklahoma have lowered the number of deaths suffered to 24 in the massive tornado that swept through the town of Moore Monday night. Originally, the figure had been as high as 51, probably a result of double-counting.
Ok, we don't get the big tornadoes like those forecast for parts of Texas and Oklahoma (the central and southern plains) this weekend, and into next week. But we DO occasionally get our share of freak weather. Would you be prepared?
Between 10 and 18 tornadoes ripped through the Dallas area on Tuesday. Homes were destroyed, vehicles were tossed around like rag dolls and residents frantically sought shelter. And many folks captured the wreckage on their video cameras and phones.
