A tragic story that continues as Oklahoma gets pummeled by tornadoes, some that have even reached class EF-4 potential status!  At least 51 people were killed and that number continues to rise, in the tornado that ripped through the southwest parts of the OKC metro, and a large number of others have sustained injuries.  The tornado was estimated to have been 2 miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore, OK!

-- President Barack Obama told Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin the federal government "stands ready to provide all available assistance" as part of the response to a series of deadly storms that have struck the Oklahoma City area, including Monday's devastating tornado.

A White House statement said the Federal Emergency Management Agency has deployed a team to assist state operations, and additional personnel are ready to be dispatched as necessary. Obama told Fallin that "the people of Oklahoma" are in the first family's "thoughts and prayers," the statement said.
