While their old house is still standing, it’s without electricity and gas. That’s what brought the family to OU, she said. “It feels like home,” Brown said, commenting on the hospitality she’s received since coming to stay at OU. Brown didn’t know how long she and her family plan to stay in the residence halls. In Walker Center, donations of things like soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bottled water and diapers have been rolling in all day, volunteer Kate Bernard said.

That is how Oklahoma is.” Young worked all day Tuesday to take inventory and make room for the incoming donations, he said. “I feel like Walmart right now,” Young said. Despite the donations, victims are lacking female hygiene products, infant formula and allergy and cold medicine, Bernard said. Donations brought to Walker Center will be used to help families in the residence halls.

Overnight, the south side of campus that normally houses OU students became a temporary home for hundreds of people displaced by the tornadoes that sliced through central Oklahoma on Monday. On its first night of operation as a temporary shelter, Walker Center housed 101 people, including four National Guard members, said Catherine Bishop, vice president of Public Affairs, in an email. After spending the night, individuals were given meals at Couch Restaurants, which was open throughout the day as a common area, and access to other resources, like a counseling service, Bishop said. As well, laptop stations have been set up for individuals who need Internet access, and OU employees are helping with activities to keep children entertained, such as games and movies, Bishop said. The Brown family was displaced from their home during the process of moving when the tornadoes tore through Moore, mother of two Melisa Brown said. The family was living with Melisa’s mother when the tornado hit, after moving from their old home. During the storm, Brown huddled in a storm shelter with about 15 other people. When she emerged from the shelter, her Julia Nelson contributed to this report. mother’s house was gone.

Norman, OU officials give tips for severe weather Police, fire department spokesmen urge residents to seek shelter below ground PAIGHTEN HARKINS Campus Editor

In the wake of a strong, destructive tornado that flattened neighborhoods and homes, officials from the OU Police Department and Norman Fire Department stress the importance of taking storm precautions. The most important thing to do during severe weather is to pay attention, whether it be to the radio or the AT A GLANCE TV, Norman Fire Chief James Fullingham said. Storm safety tips One of the best ways • Be alert and aware of to do that is with a changing storm conditions weather radio, which and listen to media makes a noise like an reports and weather alarm clock when severe radios weather warnings are issued, he said. • If the sirens go off, get “When you get indoors or inside a shelter warned — you hear or safe room the sirens go off — it’s • Once inside, find shelter not time to go outside in the inner most interior and look at the sky; you room without windows need to be in a shelter,” on the lowest level of the Fullingham said. building Once you’re indoors, the safest places to go Source: Norman Fire Chief James Fullingham are the lowest levels of buildings, may it be a basement or first floor, and in the inner most interior space without windows, OUPD spokesman Lt. Bruce Chan said. While you shouldn’t leave a building once sirens go off, if you need a safe place to go during a storm, the recommended refuge areas on campus are the Bizzell Memorial Library, the Physical Sciences Center and the residence halls that have basements, he said. For students living in apartments, they should seek shelter in a bottom-level apartment, Fullingham said. “If you’re in an apartment building, make friends with the people downstairs,” he said.

National championship or bust for this year’s Sooner squad SOFTBALL BEAT WRITER

he Sooners are turning heads, run ruling postseason opponents, dominating their sport and having a good time doing it. The No. 1 Oklahoma softball team is on a collision course to bring home its second national title in school history. This isn’t a surprising

development or breaking news, but something that has culminated throughout the spring and now into the summer. After losing the final game in last year’s Women’s C o l l e g e Wo r l d S e r i e s , Oklahoma (50-4) is the favorite to win it all in 2013. OU began the postseason by rolling over its regional opponents this past weekend by a combined score of 41-6. “They won’t say they know that they’re good, but they know they’re good,” coach Patty Gasso said following her team’s regional win Saturday. Sophomore Lauren Chamberlain, OU’s leadoff hitter, is the driving force

OU ’s other two finalists have a lot in common. Both are senior pitchers, left-handed and nearly unbeatable. Keilani Ricketts (29-1), last year’s winner of the honor, and Michelle Gascoigne (18-3) have shut down the opposition throughout their career, and nothing has changed in 2013.

he spring semester is finally over and now the summer relaxation period begins. Students, faculty and staff may have plans for this summer, but if you’re like me, you’re looking forward to some of television’s hottest shows hitting the airwaves again. Both new and returning shows will have you glued to your TV and avoiding the inevitable heat this summer. Sadly, TV shows can’t last forever, and two shows are making their final return to TV this summer. Showtime’s “Dexter” and AMC’s “Breaking Bad” will conclude after this season. However, there are some new shows that look somewhat promising and will have their premieres this summer.

When I first saw the preview for ABC’s “Mistresses,” I simply thought it was another attempt to cast a well-known actress — Alyssa Milano (“Charmed”) — as the lead and hope she could carry the weight of making the show successful. However, after I saw the first season’s trailer again, I changed my mind. The show follows four friends as they struggle with their relationships, each in their own ways, but what complicates things is when we learn they are mistresses. Being the illegitimate girlfriend of an already married man complicates things, and for this reason, I think the show will make this summer extra hot. Mistresses premieres at 9 p.m., June 3 on ABC.

Making its final return to television for its eighth season, “Dexter” returns this summer for what many believe will be a bloody finale to one of the best shows in recent years. After finding out about Dexter’s (Micheal C. Hall) secret in last season’s finale, his step-sister, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is conflicted and doesn’t know what to do with her newfound information about her brother. How will she live with knowing what her step-brother has done? Can Dexter make it through the final season without being ousted or caught? Tune in at 8 p.m., June 30 on Showtime to find out.
