    Wow! I guess this made news nationwide yesterday! I knew they were having a severe flooding situation and powerful storm, but I had no idea it was so unusual! This radar pic is amazing!

    In my 20 years as a meteorologist I've never seen what took place in Oklahoma yesterday. A weakening tropical depression all of a sudden strengthens into what looked like a tropical storm.

    Wow, how cool looking! I don't think it can be labeled tropical when it is over land, maybe subtropical??? Kinda wild, nontheless! Hope everyone was OK.

    I couldn't believe that I had heard it right on CNN and asked my husband how Oklahoma could have a tropical storm.
