Huge tornado levels Oklahoma City suburb
Joel AchenbachA massive tornado up to a mile wide chewed through Moore, Okla., a suburb of Oklahoma City, on Monday afternoon, grinding up entire neighborhoods and obliterating an elementary school where students who had huddled in a hallway with their teachers were buried in rubble.
The state medical examiner’s office said late Monday that 51 people had been confirmed killed in the tornado. That number will surely rise. “We’re sitting at 51, and the phone calls just keep coming,” said Amy Elliot, a spokeswoman for the office. Early Tuesday, she told the Associated Press that officials could see as many as 40 more deaths.
