May 31, 2013 El Reno twister was 4.3 miles wide. El Reno tornado’s width was upgraded from 2.6 to 4.3 miles wide; making it a colossal “super tornado.” BIGGEST in HISTORY. The destructive force of 12 times the tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri in 2011.
Yet... Victims (us) of the El Reno tornado were NOT declared as a disaster area, Only Moore Oklahoma (which was a smaller tornado in comparison). Because we were an insignificant small town. So insurance DID NOT cover damages and we fell into the insurance clauses. We lost everything. Had to relocate halfway across the United States, starting over with nothing. Been sleeping on the G-damn floor for a couple months now. NO freaking Red Cross for us, no insurance will cover it, no TV commercials to help the victims. No self-righteous do-gooders gave a single damn. We were tossed to the side, thrown away and forgotten. Not only us, but other towns affected like Carney, OK, which was literally wiped off the map. An entire town gone - did you hear about them? They weren't declared either.
The only thing we get is daily notifications of pay this and pay that, get your damage out of here or we will sue you (this happened to Moore home owners too). We have been effectively destroyed, even though we paid up insurance and everything. Because of the type pf damage, it is only covered if declared as a disaster area. But the Governor and President decided...meh, fck them. Send the banks and local government after them instead. God bless this chithole of a nation, eh.
