A powerful tornado has torn through a suburb of Oklahoma city in the US, leaving at least 91 people dead – including 20 children.

The three kilometre wide twister, with winds of up to 320 kilometres per hour, flattened large swathes of Moore – destroying everything in its path.

The Plaza Towers Elementary School took a direct hit. Its roof was ripped off and its walls collapsed. Emergency crews have been searching for two dozen children, thought to be buried in the rubble.

“The whole city looks like a debris field,” the mayor of Moore, Glenn Lewis told NBC. “It looks like we have lost our hospital. I drove by there a while ago and it’s pretty much destroyed.”

 

My heart goes out to them! I hope they find the missing kids alive. So sad!
