Emergency workers in Moore, Oklahoma, continued to look for any signs of life from those who could still be trapped after yesterday’s devastating tornado.
Officials revised the death toll down to 24, and more than 237 have been injured. But the full extent of the disaster is still unknown.
After surveying the damage on the ground, the National Weather Service now believes the tornado was an EF-5 level – the largest kind on the scale – that ripped through the community at winds clocking in at more than 200 miles per hour.
