Hey, ya’ll! I’m sorry for not posting much. It has been so crazy around here! I’ve had some near death experiences within the last few days. I’m not joking!
The rain and tornadoes haven’t let up much! It has been day after day of rain, tornadoes, and flooding. I’ve never seen anything like this ever! It has been heart breaking to see my City and State go through this. All we can do is pray which is the best thing we can do!!
Sunday morning we had a tornado come really close to our house. And by Sunday morning I really mean “morning”. It was around 12am and 1am when it started to get really bad. I didn’t go to sleep until 4am I think. It started in OKC (Oklahoma City) and when it was in OKC it hit a hotel and then a RV park behind the hotel and it killed 2 people. And left a lot of people hurt. One person even had to climb over a car in his hotel room to get out that’s how bad it was! It started to make it’s way down to my area. And it caused some damage! There was a lot of wind damage. Really big trees was uprooted because the ground is so soft it is just pulling them up by the roots. We are trying to get our City put back together after this tornado. After the tornado Sunday there was a earthquake at 7am in OKC. We can’t get a break.
Here is some pictures from the damage the tornado caused Sunday.
When that tornado came it also was kind enough to bring 1 or 2 more inches of rain. (Like we needed it…) We was already flooding and now we are really flooding!! The water level is crazy!
At the Keystone dam they are letting out 275,000 cubic feet of water per second. That is nearly 2 million gallons every second. I also heard that the Keystone dam is letting out more water than Niagara Falls. Now just imagine the flooding we are dealing with! And they are actually going to let more water out because we are going to get more rain.
They are also expecting one of our levees to break at any moment!! Which will not help us. They have the U.S Army walking and watching the levee 24/7. So when it breaks people can be warned. Here is a picture of the Keystone dam.
Here are some pictures of the flooding happening around my area.
Today we are supposed to have more storms. Worse than the Sunday storms we had. I am not looking forward to it. And it is going to bring about 3 more inches of rain or more. And we can’t handle anymore rain!!
I don’t know if God is trying to make a point or something but if He is someone please get the point so it will stop raining! We don’t need more rain!! Lord, help us! Oklahoma is called – God’s Country!
There is a update from me in Oklahoma. One of my friends was gone on a road trip and she asked me “What have you been up to?” and I said, “Chasing tornadoes!”. Which is true. I feel like I’m a storm chaser. Lol.
Please keep Oklahoma in your prayers! We all are have a bad year right now. But we will continue to help each other and we will get through this In Jesus Name!! It’s all in God’s hands!
Happy (late) Memorial Day!! NEVER forget the fallen! 🇺🇸
