Big time. Regular phone lines are down and cell phone lines are jammed. They've been making emergency requests via the television.

Yep took me four hours to get from SE Okc to Norman(a 25 min trip)from shields merging onto I-35 blocked by fliped tractor trailer and Bus!

 I left work and went to Out Door America to get some black-powder supplys at 3:30,or I would have been right in the middle of it.

As it was I was in the gail winds and blowing sleet,the trafic was tyed  up so bad we turned across the median and procedded to try and cut through the Moore additions(bad Idea)!

Streets litered with trees,broken spintered twoXfours,brick veneered houses with roofs on brick lines.

It was like a maze with all the downed power lines at the end of each street.   No way to get out of moore heading south.

I was getting hot till I saw all those people sitting in their front yards,their houses crunched,cars smashed looked as if a MOAB had been dropped on them!

My heart goes out to each and every one of them!
