Our prayers go out to everyone affected by the enormous tornado in the Oklahoma City area yesterday. It roared through the OKC suburbs, killing at least 51 people, including 20 children.
The two-mile-wide twister pulverized entire city blocks, left behind miles of mangled cars and splintered wood, and destroyed an elementary school where seven children were found dead.
At one hospital, 85 patients, including 65 children, were being treated for minor to critical injuries.
At least seven of the dead children were killed at an Elementary School, where the tornado tore the roof off the school about 3 p.m.
A teacher said that she draped herself on top of six children in a bathroom to shelter them.
Officials said the dead children drowned in a pool of water in the ruins of the school.
The tornado tore a 20-mile path, was on the ground for 40 minutes, and was declared a major disaster by President Barack Obama.
