Oklahoma City Tornado

Two-Mile Tornado Ravishes Oklahoma City Area — Death Count at 24 Amid Toll Confusion

A two-mile-wide tornado devastated the area around Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon, leaving at least 24 dead. More than 145 people are reported injured, and the death toll is expected to rise. There was initially confusion over the death toll, with a medical examiner reporting that 51 lives were lost, but now a different Oklahoma City medical examiner claims that number was "inaccurate" and the toll is actually around 24.

One farmer told a local station, "It was just like the movie Twister. There were horses and stuff flying around everywhere." This comes after another tornado killed two people in Shawnee, OK, on Sunday. Rescue workers are continuing to sift through the rubble from Monday's storm, which leveled neighborhoods and two elementary schools. The Red Cross is currently helping people in the Midwest, providing shelter, food, and emotional support following the tornado disasters. The Salvation Army is also taking donations. Watch CNN's coverage and a Vine clip of the destruction below.
