Oklahoma Tornado Aftermath Oklahoma Tornado Aftermath

At least 24 people were killed Monday after a tornado at least a half-mile wide hit Oklahoma on Monday, The New York Times reports. While Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma City Medical Examiner's Office, said Monday that 51 had died with 40 more bodies coming, on Tuesday she said that count was "no longer accurate."

The powerful twister hit Moore, Okla. — a town outside of Oklahoma City. It destroyed a hospital and at least two schools. Seventy-five students and staff members were huddled together in Plaza Towers Elementary School, which lay directly in the path of the tornado, when the storm actually hit.
