On May 20, 2013, an EF5 Tornado devastated Moore, Oklahoma. This tornado was believed to have been one of the worst tornadoes in history. With wind speeds of 200-210 MPH, this storm had the magnitude of devastation eight times greater than the atomic bomb which leveled Hiroshima.
This tornado killed 24 people, and injured 377.
This past Friday, Bulldog Man and I purchased tickets to watch a documentary called “Where Was God”.
The documentary, directed, produced, edited and filmed in Oklahoma, follows the stories of survivors, parents, children, first responders and volunteers, who recount the timeline of destruction and share the devastating and miraculous events that changed their lives forever. Profits will be applied toward making sure all schools have tornado shelters to protect all children.
My family and I are deeply thankful we survived this tornado, and the second tornado which occurred 1 week later. Below are the two posts which directly relate to both devastating tornadoes.
For further updates, or pictures on the tornado’s devastation and recovery, please refer to my Blog under the category of Weather.
I ask all of my Blogger friends to take 2 minutes today to look out your window or step outside, and say a prayer for your loved ones and those who lost their lives or property, and be grateful for what you have. Realize that with a blink of the eye, all of what you have or own, can be taken away from you at any time.
Prayers and Blessings to All,
