I know what the good people of Moore, Ok are going through today because my family survived an F5 tornado when we were children. And last night, my sister and my mother, who live in a small town near Springfield, Mo. stayed awake all night as the tornado sirens blared and the weather channel warned of the coming twisters. Fortunately, no one was hurt. But my sister Michelle survived a more recent cyclone in Joplin, Missouri two years ago, and she had flash-backs all night.
