MOORE, Okla. (AP) – A mix of volunteers and first responders are combing through debris in an Oklahoma City suburb looking for survivors.

The city of Moore, Okla., was hit by a mile-wide tornado on Monday afternoon.

People wearing neon-green vests were joined by residents in the search through rubble. Neighborhoods are flattened and homes blown apart.

Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department says an elementary school took a direct hit from the mile-wide tornado, but did not say which school was hit.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Shards of wood and pieces of insulation were strewn everywhere. Television footage also showed first responders picking through rubble and twisted metal.

    Wonder if Beyonce & Jay-Z will give a benefit concert for these folks.

    Never mind – these people will take care of themselves.

    They are the type of people that look to themselves to pick up the pieces and start over. Sure, some fraud will take place (it happens in all disasters) but I bet it will be nothing like what happened in New Orleans or any other liberal area hit with disaster.
