Crews comb devastation in Oklahoma; confirmed death toll lowered to 24

from NBC News

Rescue teams combed through pulverized buildings and splintered homes early May 21 after one of the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history blasted through the suburbs of Oklahoma City, killing at least 24 people. The confirmed death toll from the Oklahoma medical examiner was lowered from an earlier figure of 51, illustrating the confusion as day broke over the shattered city of Moore. It was not clear how many children were included in the revised death toll, and authorities cautioned the toll could change again. Entire blocks of Moore appeared as though they had been razed, and cars were mangled beyond recognition. At least 120 people were injured.

Note: Several tire store locations in Moore, Okla., were destroyed. TTDA is asking members to keep all those impacted by the tornado in our prayers. We also are encouraging those who would like to help to make financial donations to the American Red Cross and designate the donation for the Oklahoma Relief Fund. more
