Tornado damage from Oolagah, OK tornado 4.26.91
On this day in 1991 my husband, Russell Hulstine, was at the Copan Handi Mart that night…he ran inside to warn a woman working there that the tornado was almost there…then he headed to Oolagah, OK…
Andover, KS tornado damage 4.26.91
His cousins who lived in a mobile home in Andover, KS got out in time, thank the Lord, before a tornado leveled the mobile home Park of 300. Scary day. Thankful Russell wasn’t killed in Copan as the tornado hit the Copan Hand Mart while he was still in the parking lot!!!
Oklahoma weather, Kansas weather and severe weather in all areas of tornado valley. Sad memories. Especially as we are now in the Spring Tornado Season! ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
According to Tulsa’s Channel 6 Meteorologist Stephen Hehrenz’s Weather Blog:
“Severe storms are expected to develop by late afternoon Monday near the I-35 corridor, moving into eastern Oklahoma by early Monday evening. All modes of severe weather will be possible, including large hail, damaging winds, and even some tornadoes. Don’t be scared, just be prepared!” This girl will be prepared as we had wind damage–not tornado damage– from the storms that hit Bartlesville, OK on 4.26.16; that day we had a moderate risk as it shows for tomorrow. The threshold of the french doors in our family room were ripped out and both doors flew open with a gust of wind of 60+ mph so we are having to replace our french doors. Thankfully no one got hurt and it wasn’t worse!
Alrighty then you heard it here, hoping for no severe weather for tomorrow but…it is May so I will be praying for God’s protection especialy for the children. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

Thankfully since the tornadoes hit in Oklahoma last Friday, it has been quiet here. But it is May, the biggest month for tornadoes in OK & Kansas and severe weather is again in the forecast this time for Mother’s Day. Hoping and praying that there are no tornadoes in OK or KS on Mother’s Day. ~Mikaela & The Heart 4 Children Ministries Team
