    Massive tornado hits Oklahoma

    OUGeo and 14 other iReporters contributed to Open Story: Tornado pummels Moore, Oklahoma

    'You could feel the weight of it'

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Matt Palmer says he will be starting work on his doctorate degree in geography in the fall, and just moved to Norman, Oklahoma, to get settled. He was visiting a friend in Moore and was driving away when he heard about the storm on the radio and stopped along I-35 to take a picture of the gray skies behind him. He says of the storm activity, 'It was the first tornado that I had ever seen and it was definitely a really heavy experience and I don't mean that in any hippie way. You could just feel the weight of it. The atmosphere and the cars that were driving around and the people. It's an intense experience. It's unusual.'
