Oklahoma Tornado

One of the most severe tornadoes in recorded history wiped out part of Oklahoma. Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb described it like a “two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community.”

A hospital and an elementary school were both leveled. At least 9 children were killed.

State Highway Patrol Trooper Betsy Randolph said it was “mass devastation. “I’m talking everywhere you looked, the debris field was so high, and so far and so wide, wounded people walking around the streets. They were bloody; there were people that had stuff sticking out of them from things that were flying around in the air. There were cars crumpled up like little toys and thrown on top of buildings. Buildings that were two and three stories tall that were leveled.”

“People are wandering around like zombies,” a reporter said. “It’s like they’re not realizing how to process what had just happened.”
