Oklahoma City Tornado Update: at least 91 people Killed including more than 20 children.

One of the strongest tornadoes ever recorded has ripped through a suburb of Oklahoma City, killing up to 91 people and destroying everything in its path.

The ferocious tornado flattened entire neighbourhoods in the southern suburb of Moore with winds of up to 200mph, rendering thousands of people homeless, 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.
