51 Killed In Oklahoma Tornado; Death Toll To Rise

A tornado estimated to be two miles wide ripped into parts of the greater Oklahoma City Area.
The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office says 51 were killed, with the death toll expected to rise.

"I've never seen anything like this in my 18 years covering tornadoes here in Oklahoma City. This is without question the most horrific," said Lance West of KFOR News.

One man described being forced to find shelter in a horse stall to escape.

"It was just unbearably loud and you could see stuff flying everywhere, just about like on the movie 'Twister,'" Lando Hite said.

Several fires were also spotted in the aftermath.

Despite their terrifying experience, residents say emergency crews never stopped communicating with them.
