Dozens dead after mile-wide tornado chews through Okla. City
The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office says 37 people have been killed by a tornado that hit suburban Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon. Spokeswoman Amy Elliott says the death toll is expected to rise. Elliott didn’t know how many of those killed were children. Rescue workers clawed through mountains of rubble in a frantic search for survivors -- including dozens of children -- after a mile-wide tornado flattened an Oklahoma City suburb, destroying two schools and scores of homes and buildings.
