We Remember the April 26, 1991 Tornadoes in OK and KS

Oologah tornado damage 1991

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

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

April and May 2016 have proven that folks in the plains and elsewhere need to be prepared for not only tornadoes but straight winds, hails and floods! This week looks to be shaping up to be another week where we may have to deal with  any or all of the elements of severe weather: hail, high winds, flooding and yes the dreaded “T” word–possible tornadoes!

Our concern is especially for the kids as they depend on their parents and caretakers to keep them safe! This week there are chances for severe weather almost every day and not just in OK!  One of my favorite colors is red, but not when it’s on a severe weather map!! We have already begun praying! ‪#‎Mayweather‬ ‪#‎okwx‬ #severeweather ~Mikaela and the Heart 4 Children Ministries Team

Ok Oklahoma & Kansas It’s May!

Storm zone Monday

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
