At 10:00 CDT the medical examiner confirmed 24 fatalities – 9 children..

 

At one of them, the Briarwood School, people are thanking God and teachers for a miracle..  You’d never know from the pictures, but enough of the building held together to keep all the students alive.. Yes there were injuries, mostly scratches, scrapes and bruises.  There are reports of a teacher lifting a fallen wall off of some students.  She managed it did it after sustaining injuries that would send her to the hospital..

KFOR Channel 4 out of Oklahoma City has had amazing non-stop coverage of the Tornado and Rescue efforts on live stream since the the storm formed.  Like most news bloggers and MSM outlets I’ve spent a good part of the last 14 hours following their reports-  Currently they are reporting
