WASHINGTON, May 20, 2013 — Due to the massive tornado that hit Oklahoma today, CBS has pulled tonight’s episode of “Mike & Molly.” The plot of tonight’s scheduled season finale involves a tornado hitting Chicago.

In a press release, a CBS spokesperson stated, “due to the tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight’s season finale of “Mike & Molly”, which has a related storyline. A repeat broadcast of “Mike & Molly” will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date.”

The EF4 tornado, described as “large and deadly,” touched down south of Oklahoma City this afternoon in the suburb of Moore, causing widespread destruction and killing at least six people, officials said.

Plaza Towers Elementary School’s cinder-block walls collapsed and the roof is missing.

Search and rescue crews are currently on the scene combing through the 10-foot mountain of debris for possible survivors.

The tornado comes after severe weather on Sunday spawned at least two dozen tornadoes across Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa and Illinois.

Gov. Mary Fallin has declared a state of emergency for 16 counties that were affected by tornadoes, severe storms, straight-line winds and flooding.

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
