Oklahoma tornado: More tornado alerts in wake of deadly twister

MOORE, OK - Tornado warnings have been issued across much of the Midwest, stretching from Texas to Illinois, following a second deadly twister in as many days in the Oklahoma City area.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings Monday evening for several counties in southeastern Oklahoma and north-central Texas, along with parts of northwest Arkansas, Missouri, central Iowa and western Illinois.

The warnings were issued after a massive tornado tore through parts of suburban Oklahoma City, flattening entire neighborhoods with winds up to 200 mph and landing a direct blow on an elementary school in Moore.

The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office says dozens were killed, with the death toll expected to rise.
