Oklahomans brace, again, for tornadoes

Portions of central Oklahoma - where a devastating and deadly twister struck earlier this month - were under tornado warnings Thursday afternoon, with forecasters and authorities urging people there to take cover.

The severe weather warnings applied for south of Oklahoma City - including near Moore, which was hardest hit by a powerful May 20 twister - and north of the Oklahoma capital.

Similar warnings were also issued at one point or another Thursday afternoon  in parts of Arkansas, Illinois and Wisconsin, showing the breadth of this storm system. A tornado warning indicates there are reports that a twister has touched down or one is believed to be imminent.

    Surely prayer, joined together with traditional, conservative values, will sustain those who choose to live in Oklahoma. In 2012, they voted two-to-one for Romney!Ryan over Obama/Biden.
