Yesterday afternoon, at 2:56 P.M. Central, a tornado touched down in Moore, Oklahoma . . . which is a city just south of Oklahoma City. And it was NOT a normal tornado.This tornado was TWO MILES wide, and its winds were up to 200 miles-per-hour. It destroyed every building in its path . . . including an elementary school with children inside. As of the latest reports, 51 people are dead . . . including at least 20 children . . . and 145 people are in the hospital. We don't have an official count, but at least dozens of buildings and homes were destroyed. The local NBC station called it, quote, "the biggest, most destructive tornado in history." They probably meant in the history of the state . . . because other tornados have been more powerful and caused more deaths . . . but that's still extremely significant. Here's a short video of a man coming out of his family's storm shelter after the tornado passed:
And a woman finds her dog alive and well WHILE she's talking to news crews about him being gone:
Some pretty brave young people recording the tornado as it came through...
It might even give you nightmares. It freaks me out a little. Seriously. LOL I give it an 11 on the CF (creepy Factor) scale of 1-10. Steel your mind and give it a watch. I take no responsibility for any permanent psychological damage you may acquire:
Here's what happens when you try to shoot a large animal . . . and miss. Over the weekend, a poacher in Zimbabwe tried to KILL an endangered elephant inside a protected safari area in a national park. He shot at the elephant . . . but CLEARLY he's a bad shot, since he missed that enormous target, which looked a lot like this one I would imagine:
But the elephant did NOT miss in his response. He promptly TRAMPLED and KILLED the poacher, who ended up looking a lot like this:
The police arrested two guys who were with the poacher. Both are facing charges for possession of firearms.
