OKLAHOMA CITY — As a tornado barreled through south Oklahoma City and Moore on Wednesday evening, many residents were seeking shelter.

After the storm passed, many of those residents realized the extent of the damage done to their property and neighborhoods.

While damage and debris is usually a disheartening sight, some people are finding hope in a broken power pole. Chase Rhodes snapped a picture of power lines near 119th St. and Western Ave.

The power pole formed a cross suspended on the lines in the air.

EMSA officials say they treated five patients for non-life threatening injuries. At this point, officers are still trying to assess the damage.

Several homes sustained roof damage and there are dozens of reports of downed power lines and tree limbs.

      This world is not meant to be a paradise. No one died here but that does not mean God is with or against us. If you have a view point of only a few years how can you see the big picture?


      Your comment reminds me of a returned LDS missionary I know who decided to explore an alternative lifestyle and lost his way. Poor bloke hates himself and blames everybody else for his misery.

    the lines are taunt enough to hold it up but not taunt enough to keep it from snapping?

    not only that but it looks like the pole is in 3 peaces you can see part in the ground, part laying on the ground and part hanging in the air. im trying to think how could this happen?
