OK Hit by Massive Tornado

The pictures are horrendous. An elementary school took a direct hit. Prayers are certainly needed.

They are saying that 75 children were still in the building when the school was hit. The footage is horrendous. You can see streets and driveways and that's all. Prayers ascending for all those affected.

This is the second tornado to hit this town. In 1999 they were wiped off the map that time also. It was an F4 tornado. F5 is the highest. Here it is 9:16 p.m. and they are still looking for the kids. I have to change the channel. The thought of those kids are more than I can handle. And some for the kiddies.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the people affected by this terrible event.
