As I recall, the tristate tornado ccurred during the day, where I believe most have happened in the late afternoon-early evening. The tristate also might have been more than one tornado. It also went through small towns and rural areas. I don't think it hit a larger city like Ok City is. Back then, they had few warning systems and little communication. But, and this is my feeling, in 1925 the rural population, including small twns had a keen sense of the weather and watched it all the time. I know my older siblings did and my folks, all who were around then.
All in all, things are different now. It's hard to compare such things. But tornados can be murderous, as are Hurricanes and earthquakes.
As to earthquakes. We had one with epicenter northeast of Tulsa that I felt clear up here. Rather rattled me. Pun intended
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
You're right Dave - they don't know if the TriState was 1 or a family of 9 that traveled over 300 miles combined. They didn't have the technology then to tell. Regardless, it came from the same storm system that unleashed Hell on 3 states !
I really feel for the people of Moore... man, twice in 14 years and BOTH EF5s !! Holy Shiite, Batman !
In May 1970 I just moved out of the dorm and into a house with 2 other guys. Left Lubbock and went home to Amarillo- 120 mi N. That night we found out a tornado nailed Lubbock and was I worried I'd lost all my belongings. Luckily it wasn't in the part of town I moved into. Phew, close call !!
