PICTURES: Children Rescued From Tornado Torn Schools



Crews worked through the night early Tuesday lifting bricks and parts of collapsed walls where a monstrous tornado barreled through the Oklahoma City suburbs, demolishing an elementary school and reducing homes to piles of splintered wood.

The tornadoes hit at least two OKC area elementary schools.  Here's some pictures from the Associated Press.
