Such a heartbreaking tragedy and this is only going to continue due to climate-change. Noted, donated, twittered and google shared. Thank you for keeping us up to date Cal. Every little bit we can do to help will be much appreciated I am sure. Thank you to all who donate or help in other ways. This is what being a National Community is all about. This is what humanity should be about.

Climate change deniers, pay heed. This is the inevitable result, all predicted long ago, of losing the mountain glaciers, the arctic ice cap, the Greenland glaciers and the Antarctic's unprecedented melt. All that extra moisture in our atmosphere as less of the earth's surface is able to reflect Sol's rays back into space fuels these "once in a lifetime" storms on a multiple times a year basis. It may well be too late to stop what is coming but we could at least TRY!

This is a striking comment from the article:

L Barrett 15 hours ago

'With his own constituents dead, dying and destitute from this horrible disaster, Oklahoma senator, Tom Coburn, is now demanding that any tornado disaster relief for his state be offset by spending cuts in the federal budget before he'll vote to approve. Not only is this man crazy, he's still locked in a disproven and discredited theory that the problems this country faces are still the budget deficit and federal debt. Never has this man been more wrong. Never has there been a more callous, brainless politician. And never has this country ever tied disaster relief for its citizens to equal cuts in federal spending elsewhere. What a genuine chump Mr. Coburn is. Now Oklahomans can see just what sort of "man" he really is...'

Our hearts go out to these unfortunate people who have experienced the wrath of mother nature.
What will it take to convince the deniers that we need to take urgent action to start reversing the damage we have caused to this magnificent planet.
We need to stop deforestation, move away from coal and oil as quickly as possible and start planting a lot more Trees and Bamboo.

why is this old news still here. The death toll was thankfully revised down to 24. That's a miracle.
