Mind you.. at this time its getting my attention but I'm thinkin.. who cares.. they said no warnings.. it can't be that bad.  At 12:25.. the tornado sirenes go off here in Edmond (northern OK county).  They immediately come on TV saying there is a tornado at 15th street.. I'm on 2nd street about a quarter mile over.. right in its path.  It goes up and down as i watch the rotation moving down the street.. never hitting the ground.

12:flamethrowing: I think this one was a little late...
