UPDATE: The M.E. says numbers are 51 dead at least 20 of which are children.
The planned story over the shrinking deficit will be delayed until at least tomorrow in light of the events today in Moore, Oklahoma. It would not be prudent to discuss such trivial things in a time of such tragedy.
Moore, Oklahoma was hit by a massive tornado this afternoon that had at least one school in its path. The storm is reported to have had a preliminary rating of an EF4 and according to reports the tornado was 2 miles wide.
At least 51 are dead including 7 children according to authorities. This comes on the heels of the storms in Texas last week and the deadly twister outbreak in Oklahoma yesterday May 19th in which 2 are reported to have died on a day with with 26 reported twisters.
Please keep the people of Oklahoma in your thoughts and prayers tonight.
