MOORE, Okla. - The parents and guardians stood in the muddy grass outside an Oklahoma City area church, listening as someone with a bullhorn called out the names of children who were being dropped off - survivors of a deadly tornado that barreled through their community.
At least seven children are among the 24 reported dead so far in Moore, the Oklahoma City suburb ravaged by Monday's tornado that packed winds of up to 200 mph. The twister reduced one elementary school to a heaping mound of rubble and heavily damaged another while also flattening block after block of homes.
Tonya Sharp and Deanna Wallace sat at a table in the church's gymnasium waiting for their teenage daughters.
