    The kids and teachers buried in the school rubble is heart breaking. It looks like a bomb went off.

    Amazing to see all of the help on site and all the volunteers showing up from all over to help.

    Part of the reason I left that area and headed for greener less windy pastures. Add to it that state is one of the poorest so it is really bad.

    37 confirmed dead in the outbreaks. I don't think that number includes the kids in that school.

    Do we have a list of who on here lives in Oklahoma?

    A roll call perhaps?

    No problem. Hopefully she is okay. Looks like the entire town of Moore was completely destroyed.

    They're saying this may have been the strongest tornado, with the strongest winds on record.

    The tens of minutes long period of sheer terror that those who died must have experienced is what gets me.

    Hortensia the fifth photo is just jaw-dropping.
