A large Tornado has torn a path through Moore, OK today. An elementary school, K-3, took a direct hit. At this time I believe rescue efforts have ceased and they are now concentrating on search and recovery. There are 24 children still missing at this time and I believe 7 children confirmed dead. Please pray for the kids, their families and the first responders on the scene. I know CNN has been on scene all afternoon. Below are some links to the news stories:

Yep, been in a news blackout today so I had not heard anything about it. So sad to see loss of life in these. Prayers headed that way.

Busy day at Fire station today. Tornado was 1.25 miles from my house. My mother and brother in law's houses took direct hits. Everyone is fine but had to put down all her horses due to injuries. We need many prayers for the lives lost. Especially for the children and their families.

Rusty,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys. I know the state FOP and our Disaster Response Team has headed your way with some relief assistance. Their facebook post shows they are set up set up at the Lowes, between 4th & 19th on Telephone road. One of our retired homicide detectives is working with the National Center for missing and Exploited Children, he is also on his way or already there to set up a command post for NCMEC.

The last news report I saw was 20 children killed and another 20 still missing or unaccounted for.
