Re: OKC extreme weather

Also keep in mind, that there hasn't necessarily been MORE tornadoes. In fact, last year was a record low year.

I think there are a few factors making them seem more intense.

1) There are more people living in Tornado Alley. There may have been tons of EF5's out in the middle of no-where, but all they did was knock over a bunch of tres.

2) Media coverage has been much more pronounced lately. Tornadoes make headlines more than they used to, especially since there are many more, "extreme videos" and what not.

It may appear that tornadic weather is more intense, but that may not necessarily be the case.

In 2011 there were 6 EF5 tornado's; "only" been 2 thus far this year.

There were also 7 in 1974.

Re: OKC extreme weather

So we have this stupid little tropical storm and its like the sky is falling. Last night and this morning that's all they talked about on the news and they even had reporters out on locations. Its raining and maybe at best gust of winds of less then 10 mph. One reporter seemed to make fun of the coverage by saying "Look I think I saw a limb move on that one tree". The whole thing is stupid.

I know! It is stupid.

Thing is they blow little shit like this out of proportion and people laugh at them for being over excited; then something real comes along and folks ignore them. A deadly game of cry wolf.
