Yeah, they said that some of the dead were counted twice, hence the initial number of 51. Still a horrible tragedy!
I'm more concerned than ever, now, for my sister who sits over there in Indiana (part of tornado alley) WITHOUT a storm cellar or even a basement! I've pleaded with her to have one built, and she just says if a twister looks like it's coming her way, she'll grab the pets and get into the bathtub and put a mattress over all of them!
I have news for her! If a gigantic EF4 or EF5 comes roaring through, that's NOT going to save her!
Why are some folks in that part of the country so cavalier about not having the needed protection?
Maybe this awful tragedy in Oklahoma will finally get across to her that she needs some sort of underground bunker.
Sorry about the rant, but I really do worry for her.

I even wonder about those who crawl into their storm seller and then 20 ft of debris gets dumped on top of it and a couple cars. Gez, you'd be dead before you were found. That great big horse farm that had 100 dead horses was sad, too. Tornado's are getting bigger and more frequent every year.

That's a sad scenario (both cases). The horses remind me of the flood in PA, which led to zookeepers at Hershey putting down animals that would have drowned, otherwise.
Tornado's and storms aren't getting bigger/more frequent... they're just politicized more, because politicians have an agenda surrounding man-made global warming.
