crazy isn't it????

At least nine people have died after a series of tornadoes slammed through the Oklahoma City area Friday, with at least 100 people injured, while heavy flooding hampers recovery efforts.

The state medical examiner's office confirmed Saturday morning that the death toll had risen to at least nine, including at least two children. Meanwhile the Oklahoma State Department of Health reported that Oklahoma City-area hospitals treated 104 people. More than half of those were people who had been cut or pierced.

I used to attend school in the Oklahoma City area back in 2009 and early 2010 and am familiar with many of the cities and towns that sustained damage.

I'll certainly be keeping my fingers crossed for all affected people. That particular region has some of the most resilient people in existence.
