Give OK some love.

Oklahoma could really use a break and our assistance and prayers:

For the second time in two weeks, the state of Oklahoma has seen its second EF5 rated tornado.

In addition, the width of the tornado has been given a "conservative" estimate of 2.6 miles. This is a new record for the widest tornado in history....

The Weather Channel's Mike Bettes' team was in the path of the latest tornado storm-chasing and ended up getting thrown, along with the chase vehicles. Fortunately, everyone was wearing their seat belts and ducked down. There were injuries, but they walked away. Not all storm chasers have been that lucky, sadly.

Sympathies go out to the families of those killed and to those who now have to pick up the pieces.
