    KFOR (Im watching live feed) reports 7 of the kids at the elementary school are dead and searching the rubble for 30 more. Live shot of thousands of people walking northward after their homes destroyed. Reporters had no clue where they were heading - if they indeed even know.

    From city-data.com: Tornado activity:

    Moore-area historical tornado activity is above Oklahoma state average. It is 423% greater than the overall U.S. average.


    On 5/3/1999, a category F5 (max. wind speeds 261-318 mph) tornado 8.3 miles away from the Moore city center killed 36 people and injured 583 people and caused $1000 million in damages.

    Tragic news - KFOR reporting authorities say it does not appear any survivors in Plaza Towers Elementary School destroyed by the tornado. 20-30 more children are still in the rubble. The 7 children pulled from debris apparently drowned in a pool of water in the rubble.
