    AJ, stay safe and I know you and the other 3 med students will be helpful.

    My prayers are with the people in Oklahoma and the families of the children at the elementary school.

    This has been the top story on the BBC 24 News over here (even putting the marriage vote into second place)

    The pictures look devastating. I'm relieved that friends on the board are able to report they're OK - but my heart goes out to those still trapped or missing loved ones.

    Prayers for all those affected, or still threatened by impending storms

    Yikes, this is some scary stuff guys! Stay safe!

    If you don't mind me asking, though, surely the tornadoes were semi-expected by that point...Why were kids in school? This isn't the right time, I know, but I feel the question needs to be asked...Sorry, blame my rational, cynical self :S

    The storm that hit Moore, was only a cloud storm with no action to in it. Than it all of sudden formed a wall cloud and tornado activity. It only gave a 45 minute notice before it hit which is not enough time to get that many children out and safe especially in the area of Moore. It came fast and with it being a E5 tornado. It is safer for them to be inside than outside

    On my news here, there was a little girl who talked about holding on to the wall/door "or else the tornado would have blown me away" and then a man talked about a teacher they found with 3 children under her protecting them. He was very emotional talking about the teacher - he didn't know if she would make it or not. Prayers to the families who have lost family members today.

    Yikes, okay, I didn't know that our weather prediction technology could still get only 45 minutes of a heads-up! Cyclones in India are forecast like days ahead so we all hunker down and prepare to get battered.

    That's so sad about these little children...They were in school!

    Well we were aware of the danger of storms the last couple days but it is really hard to predict where tornado's will hit. Usually when one gets close, our sirens start going off like crazy. I had one hit my neighborhood 2 years ago and it was fast. The sirens went off, then it sounds like a train went by with hard rain and it was over with. It took down all the power poles down on the ground and landed my tree right above my bedroom window where I was sleeping.

    They are scary

    We are all so used to having these big storms approach us, the sirens go off...and then sometimes, all of a sudden a tornado drops out of the big cloud. Several of those children drowned in the school, they found them. Tonight they are sending in Army coptors with the special lights, that can see a body in the dark, to try and find the other children. Toby called in, to Ok City TV, and expressed his sympathies and prayers for all. Wondering if Carrie will sing BA tonight? Tough call!! Thank you, Adam!!!!

    It might be really hard for Carrie to sing BA ever again, sadly. I hope that is not the case, but it is too close to the tragedy tonight.

    This passage fits those demented people aptly:

    Romans 3:10-18

    as it is written,

    “There is none righteous, not even one;
    There is none who understands,
    There is none who seeks for God;
    All have turned aside, together they have become useless;
    There is none who does good, there is not even one.”
    “Their throat is an open grave, with their tongues they keep deceiving,”
    “The poison of asps is under their lips”;
    “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;
    “Their feet are swift to shed blood,
    Destruction and misery are in their paths,
    and the path of peace they have not known.”
    “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

    It was just upgraded to 91 dead on CNN, with more coming.

    look at this poor guy on his rocking chair, still rocking after his house blew away.
