I cannot imagine, horrible stuff. So many kids affected in this, just heard of a daycare center was located in the path.


Edit: They just reported that the kids in the daycare are OK.

Please God let those kids be ok. I completely lost it when I heard Lance West crying. In all my life, I have never heard one of our Weathermen lose it like that. My only hope is that Moore built their schools to withstand a major tornado after living through the devastation in 99.

Also wanted to mention to those not from the area that they keep showing the Orr Family Farm. That place has been a beacon to our community for almost 50 years. Most kids have grown up visiting it on field trips ect. Many people around Oklahoma City truly appreciate that family.

Nope. Their shelter was a hallway. Quite why you wouldn't build a concrete bunker under the school in that area is beyond me.

I thought they just had a big tornado in OK? Or am I getting my states mixed up?

Awesome! Lance just reported that 30 have been pulled out of the school alive. Not sure if that number is from the 75 reported in the hallway or in addition to it. But at least we know that some in that school are alive! That gives hope for those that are still trapped in it will be alive as well.

Just saw an interview with the guy who took care of the horses, just tragic, send him prayers along with the people who are crying out for help trapped under the debris.

News9 just reported that all the children from the school have been accounted for, I hope that is accurate.
