Tornadoes Kill at Least 19 in OK and MO; OK Town Almost Destroyed
Note: in chaotic situations, death tolls vary. KTUL is on the scene, and we're trusting them.
Ambulances literally raced back and forth between the tiny, struggling town of Picher and the nearest hospital in Miami, OK after a fourth day of severe weather ended in a tornado savaging the area.
At least six people are known to have died in the tornado, tentatively classifed as an F3. The twister was one of several that gouged across Eastern Oklahoma early Saturday evening.
