Rescue crews outside Oklahoma City continue to dig through piles of debris, looking for survivors, after the worst outbreak of violent weather so far this year.
Authorities revise death toll downward to 24, including nine children.
It's still unclear how many of those deaths occurred when the tornado leveled Plaza Towers Elementary elementary school.
The unstoppable force of nature stretched at least two miles wide and packed winds of at least 166 miles per hour.
An estimated 300 homes have been damaged or destroyed.
