    They probably won't report it until next of kin have been notified.
    CNN is also reporting it.

    KFOR is reporting it. Not sure if they're the local NBC affiliate or not.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    First responders began the grim task of digging people -- including children at two elementary schools -- out of piles of rubble this evening after a devastating monster tornado roared through the Oklahoma city metropolitan area, leaving at least 51 people dead.

    Among the dead were children from one of the devastated elementary schools in Moore, Okla., local officials said.
    Desperate parents stood around what was left of the devastated Plaza Towers Elementary School, many of them sobbing, as rescuers worked to to help pull out school children and faculty.

    "I know there's a number of dead children from that school," Oklahoma City Police spokesman Sgt. Gary Knight said. "I know the number is around seven."

    Authorities said Briarwood Elementary School in Moore, Okla., received a "direct hit" from the storm and was also destroyed, with its roof and walls blown off.

    At least 105 people have been admitted to area hospitals as more people emerged from the rubble. Moore Medical Center, the only hospital in Moore, sustained major damage and was evacuating all of its patients to other hospitals.

    The Oklahoma University Medical Center in downtown Oklahoma City had received 85 patients, 65 of which were children. Integris Southwest Medical Center in downtown Oklahoma City, said it received 33 patients, including three children.

    Radar appears to say Rock is OK. As for friends and family in Ardmore, Sulpur, Lone Grove, Springer, .......

    Praying for everyone's safety tonight and tomorrow. Called my son tonight in the St Louis area. He said there were tornado alerts out tonight. Very worried about my family and friends in the Midwest.
    Luke, also in tears about those poor little children and their families.
