OKLAHOMA TORNADO 2013


Psalms 83:13-18
O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire. So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:That men may know that thou, whose name alone is YAHUWAH, art the most high over all the earth.


I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.(Proverbs 1:26-27)


The town of Moore was hit the hardest on Monday when multiple tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, flattening entire neighbourhoods and killing at least 24 people, including nine children.
Rescue efforts in the tornado-ravaged Oklahoma City suburb of Moore continued through the night into Wednesday morning, with officials increasingly confident that everyone caught in the disaster had been accounted for.
The massive tornado that tore through the area on Monday wiped out blocks of houses, killed at least 24 people and injured about 240.
After a long day of searching through shattered homes that was slowed by rainy weather, Oklahoma County commissioner Brian Maughan said it seemed no one was missing.
As he spoke on Tuesday evening, dog teams and members of the National Guard were changing shifts to work through the night. The death toll of 24 was lower than initially feared, but nine children were among the dead, including seven who died at Plaza Towers Elementary School which took a direct hit by the deadliest tornado to strike the United States in two years.
