OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahomans woke up once again to tragedy after another night of deadly storms explode just west of El Reno and crossed the metro killing 13 people, including several children.

The storms injured dozens more and some remain in critical condition. Many who perished were in their cars, while the tenth and eleventh victim were recovered from flooded areas.

More than 90 people have been treated for injuries as the storms dumped five to ten inches of rain in a few hours.

The same storms that spawned multiple tornadoes also brought torrential rains that soon led to massive flooding and people scrambling to find refuge from the storm.

Daylight did not bring peace. The rising waters forced the evacuations of hundreds and sadly the body of a tenth victim was discovered this afternoon. He was reported missing after he left for work this morning and never arrived.

For the second week in a row families across Oklahoma are once again cleaning up after a string of deadly tornadoes; leaving many homes and lives splintered.

Multiple twisters, sometimes two on the ground at once, crisscrossed the landscape destroying everything in their path.

As the storm approached the southwest side of the metro thousands sought refuge in the tunnels below Will Rogers World Airport to seek cover.

It’s a good thing the tornado went just north of the airport, but 80 mile an hour winds battered the building leaving it vulnerable to the deluge of rain that followed.

Some aircraft and surrounding hangers were also damaged. There is no word yet on the estimated cost for repairs.

Despite all the destruction flights have resumed.
