Massive Tornado Stikes Moore, Oklahoma

Highway Patrol: "Hundreds and hundreds possibly trapped"

Moore OK (May 20, 2013) -- Moments ago, a massive tornado ripped through the town of Moore, Oklahoma, just outside Oklahoma City — laying waste in its path and killing at least two victims.

"Children trapped---children hurt" at Briarwood Elementary School in Moore, OK after tornado.  

 KFOR meteorologist Mike Morgan just called this "the worst tornado damage-wise in the history of the world." Morgan estimates the damage to be two-three times worse than that of the May 1999 tornado — the worst ever — which also hit the town of Moore.

Now: 49 of the 75 trapped hildren have now been rescued at elementary school however the Moore Regional Hospital is destroyed. Radio traffic: Firefighters are awaiting EMS units to transport injured kids to Childrens Hospital of Oklahoma in OK City.
