Colossal Tornado Strikes Moore Oklahoma, Dozens of Casualties, Town Shredded

I have been glued to TV news coverage of the massive tornado which ripped apart Moore Oklahoma yesterday so all of my coverage at least a day late. Reports indicate at least 51 casualties but that number will most likely change as today’s aftermath story unfolds. This was at least a category F4 storm, but from the looks of the catastrophic damage, I am wondering if it was an F5. Winds reached over 200 mph and the core of the storm was at least a half mile wide. It stayed on the ground for nearly an hour.  We are not out of the woods yet for ferocious tornado and storm weather. Yesterday storm alerts were lit up from Texas to the Great Lakes on US weather maps. Follow breaking weather updates here.
