So, 20 years ago, the first tornado officially measured with winds of 300 mph occured here in central Oklahoma. I responded with the SAR team I volunteered with. Our first duty was to clear the cars and debris under an overpass on I-35 at Moore. After the two Bethany firefighters I was with, along with OHP officers and others, cleared the area, we used my Blazer to load up some injured motorists to take them over to the command post set up at a big Baptist church. I ended up running Resource Command for the duration. The May 3, 1999 tornado caused an “upgrade” in the Fujita Scale. As y’all know, I have a macabre sense of humor. Which is why I’m posting this video. Happy Friday.
FYI, Iffy wants to turn this video into a story. Figures. 🙄
