I have relatives in Oklahoma who had near misses yesterday. One of them has a storm shelter outside after going through the 98? Tornado.

Update from Yahoo ( 8 killed now.) Looks like another crap weather season.Thoughts and prayers go to all who lost loved ones. It might be time to require storm shelters in all new homes , at least a 6 x 6 concrete room with a steel door.
