We are 40 miles pretty much due east of Tulsa in Northeast Oklahoma. Moore is an Okla. City suburb (central part of the state), and about 160 miles from us. The same storm cell that spawned the Moore Tornado came within a few miles of us, but had weakened to the point where it was just hail, high winds and lots of rain by the time it got here. There were other storm cells that produced several tornados in Northeastern Oklahoma, but the nearest to us was about 25 miles away. My heart breaks for the families of those school children who have been lost.
