    Report just came in that all students from one of the schools have been accounted for. They didn't say if that means they were all alive... but that's something at least.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    A massive tornado ripped across Moore Monday afternoon, wiping out neighborhoods, destroying a school, killing at least three people and leaving an untold number of people injured.

    The powerful tornado first touched down in Newcastle and churned toward Interstate 44 and S.W. 149th Street. It ripped down Santa Fe and hit Briarwood Elementary School, destroying the building. Parents ran to the school, trying to make sure their children were all right. Firefighters and police raced to the scene to help rescue trapped students and staff.

    Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department says there is no word of injuries from the elementary school. A teacher told News 9's Karl Torp that students and staff took shelter before the storm struck in hallways and under their decks. There were some minor injuries but all students were accounted for.

    There were also reports a daycare center next door to the school was hit. Several children were pulled safely from the debris. Plaza Towers Elementary also sustained serious damage.

    There were reports three people were killed at 7-Eleven Store in Moore. There were also reports two children were killed in the tornado.

    I pray that the children are o.k, as well as the others affected by this devastation. I wish I could get there and help with the recovery :(

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    I'm watching local coverage and am not hearing anything about 24 dead children?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Fox News reported it, and said that the Local NBC affiliate in the area confirmed it.

    This was a real bad one, especially with all those poor kids.

    Winds over 200+ mph, 1 to 2 miles wide...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Odd but it still is not being reported locally, I see the links on drudge.
    They probably won't report it until next of kin have been notified.
