The enormous tornado roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs, killing at least 51 people, including 20 children Monday.

The two-mile-wide twister pulverized entire city blocks, left behind miles of mangled cars and splintered wood, and destroyed an elementary school where seven children were found dead.

At one hospital, 85 patients, including 65 children, were being treated for minor to critical injuries.

At least seven of the dead children were killed at an Elementary School, where the tornado tore the roof off the school about 3 p.m.
