Moore has been hit by several tornadoes already today. More are coming according to the TV meteorologists.

There has to be something about it that causes tornadoes to take that path.

For reasons unknown the same places get hit over and over within Tornado Alley. Moore and S OKC get hit a lot, so does NW Birmingham AL. During the last 3 Super Outbreaks in Alabama (1932, 1974, and 2011) a long track tornado hit Hackleburg, Phil Campbell, and Tanner. Locally where I'm at the prime tornado corridor goes north of Louisville through Daisy Hill Indiana into Madison Indiana and back into Northern KY south of Cincinnati. Many homes rebuilt after 1974 were destroyed again in 2012. I guess the same type of storm patterns pop storms out in the same location with the same storm direction.

Yes, I was watching the radar, hopefully it wasn't bad for that area. At this point, real estate values must be impacted in places like Moore.

I don't know about real estate values, but, it seems silly to re-build in the track of a tornado. The cities ought not to allow it.

I lived in OK a long time. Weather patterns are predictable: open space, dense population, and everything in this path. OK weather often begins in SW Texas, comes into OKC, continues to Tulsa on I-44, and then on to the MO border where it customarily splits. It may go North on Main or on Business 71 at Joplin, or turn South to Neosho and thence along US 60 into Springfield. OKC, Tulsa, Joplin and Springfield have all been hit by EF(X) tornadoes in the last twenty years. I've seen the damage in all except OKC. .

Norman looks to be in a relative minimum here. Very curious.

Probably the Oklahoma City area, since it's such a huge target and of course the TV station weather people aren't going to miss any.
