SOURCE the In this issue: Data Used for Domestic Violence Study …….. 2 Staff Seminar…………..2 Lunch ‘n Learn………..3 New Lab Forms……….4 Summer 2013 Edition The afternoon of May 20th weather sirens wailed, sending OSBI employees at headquarters in northwest Oklahoma City to huddle in designated areas on the first floor. Many sat transfixed as they watched local television news crews in the air and on the ground chasing a growing twister headed for Moore. As the EF4 grew to a monster EF5 tornado slicing through the south end of the metro, OSBI administrators began lining up agents to respond to devastated areas. When the all-clear was given to employees, more than two dozen available agents traveled south to start searching for survivors. The OSBI Mobile Analysis Unit was also dispatched to Moore to help with communications between first responders. Cell phone towers and electrical poles in the area were toppled, making communica-tions between first responders problematic. Moore Police requested agents start checking houses directly west of the Warren Theater. For hours, agents sifted through debris helping people to safety. The next day, agents aided Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers keeping the perimeters secure and responding to reports of looters. For several days, OSBI had agents assigned to the area around the clock. May 24th, nearly a dozen criminalists and support personnel spent the day cleaning debris from the po-lice department. The building itself was not dam-aged, but the parking lot and grounds were covered with a thick layer of mud and tornado debris. Sunday, May 26th, President Barack Obama visited the area to give support to the community. Agents helped troopers guard intersections for the presiden-tial motorcade to safely travel the area. Several homes of OSBI employees were damaged. One house was destroyed, as it was in the direct path of the twister. Thankfully, that family left the area to seek shelter elsewhere.
