22 Years Ago Today There Was An F-5 Tornado That Was Headed This Way....

It hit Bridge Creek area in Oklahoma first and the strongest winds, 318 mph, ever recorded on earth happened. The tornado turned the northeast and hit Moore Oklahoma & south Oklahoma City causing devastating amounts of destruction.

[@1097981,JoePourMan] My nephew built a home in the rural area of Bridge Creek a few years ago. That’s the area where the F-5 tornadoes form & lower on the ground when a strong dry line front moves through Oklahoma from the west. Can usually tell without even hearing the weather news in early morning that the afternoon is going to be really bad due to the way it feels outside...I call it tornado weather.

[@16806,cherokeepatti] I’m sure. Did it ever make it to you?

[@403045,Ambroseguy80] no it made a turn to the northeast before it got to the river near this city. They say there is something with the river that causes that to happen. We have had some strong tornadoes but they don’t usually stay on the ground that long if they touch down.

[@16806,cherokeepatti] be glad you are fortunate. I’ve heard tell of that. We live between two major rivers and they say that’s why we don’t get many tornadoes here.
