As the injured began flooding into local hospitals, the authorities said many remained trapped, even as rescue workers struggled to make their way through debris-clogged streets to the devastated suburb of Moore, where much of the damage occurred. Amy Elliott, the spokeswoman for the Oklahoma City Medical Examiner, said that at least 37 people had died, and officials said that toll was likely to climb.[LBN:the number of confirmed deaths has risen to 51 http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50147261n according to the state medical examiner; of those 20 are children found at Plaza Elemementary School http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/05/21/medical-examiner-at-least-20-children-among-51-people-killed-by-oklahoma/ ]
At Briarwood Elementary school in Oklahoma City on the border with Moore, cars were thrown through the façade and the roof was torn off. A short distance away, at Plaza Towers Elementary school here rescue workers struggled to tear through rubble amid reports the dozens students remained trapped.
While there was no official confirmation of fatalities, local media citing witnesses said rescue workers had begun to pull bodies from the rubble at various locations. 
“Numerous neighborhoods completely leveled,” Sgt. Gary Knight of the Oklahoma City Police Department said by telephone. “Neighborhoods just wiped clean.”
Sergeant Knight said debris and damage to roadways along with heavy traffic were was hindering emergency responders, who continue to race to the affected areas.Brooke Cayot, a spokeswoman for the Integris Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City, said that as of 5:48 Central Time the hospital had received 33 patients. Of those 10 were listed in critical condition, 10 in serious and 12 in fair or good. Many more patients were expected.“They’ve been coming in minute by minute,” Ms. Cayot said.Read the full story here, more here.

Earlier reports said some children may be accounted for at a temporary shelter at St Andrews Methodist Church;they are hoping the number of children dead/missing will go down. Currently the number of fatalities confirmed overall is 51, but that total is expected to rise as the search and recovery continues through the night. 

 

Keep OK in your prayers tonight, especially those parents who lost their beautiful children :( I pray the number of injured/dead goes down and more are found alive and well.
