The last few weeks have been pretty brutal across Oklahoma. Widespread storms and several communities have been hit and devastated by tornadoes.

To add insult to injury, thieves have been out and about in these areas taking as much stuff as they can find.

This isn't finders keepers - this is stealing from those who've lost everything. If that doesn't make you angry on behalf of those suffering real loss, I don't know what will.

I'll be honest with you, in the heat of the moment, in such an emotionally charged area such as a tornado recovery zone, I don't know what will play as legal or illegal, or more likely - right and wrong.

Even more fascinating are the strange and almost terrifying facts about these powerful displays of nature.
