If you want to get an idea why so few get hurt here from the tornados check out these links with Live coverage. Today is a massive supercell breakout .

OKC Channel with several active on the ground.

My nephew is currently stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. ,  tornado sirens have been going off since yesterday. Kali born, he's like me, preferring earthquakes to tornado's any day!!

Unfortunately, several storm chasers lost their lives and other chasers were caught in it and some had vehicles destroyed, including "The Weather Channel" crew. That storm system was exceedingly erratic and predictions of storm track were only semi- useful. I did evacuate because at one point the big EWF3 was coming straight at me. Our neighborhood only received damage from straight winds/hail/flooding/lightning as the tornado switched directions before getting here.
Had around 10" rain at this location, but now have power restored, but many are still without. Got lucky.

Two local ranges were destroyed... the Oklahoma Trap Shooting Association range, with Oklahoma State trapshooting 2013 Tournament underway, and the Canadian Rifle and Pistol range was also destroyed.

I think the death toll is up to 12 souls, now.

I hadn't realized the Shooting range had been leveled.  I learned to skeet and trap shoot at that range.  Spent most of my youth with my friends shooting there.  Do you know if they have plans to rebuild it?

Gene Sears is going to rebuild the trap/skeet range, but not sure about the rifle/pistol range. I talked to Harry's (ran the place) wife right after the storm, but she didn't know anything.
