Thousands were without power as high winds and record setting rain fall rolled through Western Washington Sunday night and Monday morning knocking over power lines. That isn't too uncommon for this time of year, but according to the National Weather Service, a tornado actually touched down in the town of Frederickson, about 45 miles south of Seattle. A rare occurrence for the Pacific Northwest.
Today (May 20), disaster hit Oklahoma, as a two-mile wide tornado left devastating damage, killing more than 50 people in its path. The deadly twister, which hit speeds up to 200 miles per hour, struck in the suburbs of Oklahoma City, and tragically a number of young children are among the deceased as an area elementary school in Moore, Okla., was destroyed.
A huge tornado touched down just outside of Oklahoma City earlier today, causing widespread destruction and leaving behind a yet-untold number of casualties.
