Deadly Tornado Kills Dozens In Oklahoma City

One of the strongest tornadoes ever recorded has ripped through Oklahoma City, killing at least 51 people and destroying everything in its path.

The ferocious tornado flattened entire neighbourhoods in the southern suburb of Moore with winds of up to 200 mph, leaving buildings on fire and landing a direct blow to a school.

Several children were pulled alive from the wreckage of Plaza Towers Elementary School after the devastating, mile-wide tornado reduced the building to heaps of rubble and twisted metal.
