NO LINK ON THEIR WEBSITE YET,
All they usually do is have the kids sit in hallways with their heads between their knees, at least that’s what we did as kids in Michigan.
This tornado was so bad, though, that the school probably just exploded, would not have mattered where anyone was. Happened to Lake School District in Ohio a few years ago—obliterated. Fortunately there was no school that day.
Anyone other than Fox confirm this?
A tragedy that will be perverted by the press with a Sandy Hook comparison.
Just damn. I teach 3rd grade in Texas.
Heard a report earlier that addressed the ground there. Evidently there is a layer of top soil, and then there’s an almost impenetrable layer under that. Evidently very few homes have the traditional storm shelters in Oklahoma. (basement involved)
I’m not saying it’s true, but that was a comment made on one of the afternoon talk shows in Los Angeles (KFI).
Sorry but you can’t run from them, it was 2 miles wide..
I know this is no time for politics, but after this week I have to wonder if the Feds are going to factor in past activities when they decide who gets what disaster relief.
Pray for the victims and our country.
Up to TWENTY-FOUR children feared dead in rubble of flattened elementary school after giant TWO-MILE tornado rips through densely-populated suburb of Oklahoma City
Oh.....Lotsa prayers for all those broken hearts.
You don’t run from an F5 on foot. You go to ground and pray. Everything in the open is shredded.
run where? 200 mph winds and a half mile wide?
24? NO. Please....
God bless my fellow Okies.
How soon before these deaths will be blamed on the Republican’s sequester cutting “vital” funds from weather warnings systems? I am certain Obama is preparing for a trip to Oklahoma for a photo op and will like in the wake of hurricane Sandy promise all kinds of federal aid which will never arrive.
Zero is ecstatic for the distraction from 0bamagate.
OMG. :*(*** Those precious babies.
In this case, the direct hit, combined with the power of the event likely made a lot this irrelevant.
It is being reported on the local NBC affiliate KFOR also.
