Tornados struck my native Oklahoma last night, killing 15 people in Lone Grove, a little town of some 4000 people near Ardmore.
My brother lives in Lone Grove!
We couldn’t get ahold of him, making for a time of panic. But he called my parents with the news that he and my sister-in-law survived. They were both at work in Ardmore when the tornado hit. My brother called a neighbor who said that their house appeared to be standing. No one is being allowed in for now, what with the downed power lines, wreckage, and chaos.
