This is so unbearably tragic!!

Mother nature struck Oklahoma with very little warning earlier today, demolishing good chunks of Oklahoma City suburbs and killing at least 37 people!!

Glenn Lewis, the mayor of Moore — an outlier of OKC — said:

It is likely way too early to properly get a handle on property damage and human causalities.
