Freaks & Geeks (1999)
In case you haven’t been paying attention, a massive F4-F5 mile wide tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma this afternoon, wiping out elementary schools and neighborhoods in the process.
This is about ten miles from where I lived from 2007-2012. I drove through this area a few times a week. That movie theater is my favorite movie theater in the OKC area.
I just can’t handle it.
A tornado ripped through this exact area in 1999 and roughly 40 people died. They’re saying this was 3x worse than that.
I get homesick a lot, but it hurts so much more when stuff like this happens. Oklahoma has the most resilient people, so I know everything will be fine. It just hurts my heart so much to see this.
Really gives you an idea of the magnitude of the destruction.
The Associated Press’s Sue Ogrocki was among the first photojournalists on scene in storm-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma. Among the images she captured: children being pulled from the Plaza Towers Elementary School, where as many as 75 students and staff had sheltered during the tornado, which all but completely leveled the town.

It’s horrifying to think that storm season isn’t close to being over.
