    Oklahoma farm used in film Twister devastated by real tornado in last weeks storm

    The track of the fictitious tornado in the film and the real one that hit Monday appeared eerily familiar, Harrison said.

    "The path of the tornado came exactly the same way that they made it in the movie,” he said.

    The two silos destroyed in the storm were also pictured in the film, as was the tractor left on the bridge in the movie. The tractor wasn’t damaged.

    They have updated the EF-3 to an EF-4. I should have taken pics of the house I went to bid the other day. I built the house in 2008 and it was hit by the tornado. It has major damage. By the way, as I was typing this we had an earthquake, we have it all in OK now.

    When the EF-5 hit here in the early 90's, I knew a guy who had just built a new house, and was about to close on the house he was in. He was moving in 3 days from the one to the other. The houses were about 5 miles from each other.... but both, were right in the path of the tornado.... and it took both of them out.

    So, luckily insurance was in effect on both houses. Never drop your insurance on the house you are selling until after closing.....

    Wow, I can't imagine having to worry about being in a tornado's path. Makes the hair on my arms stand up.
