Oklahoma tornado survivor: "It sounded like a freight train"

A massive path of destruction across a suburb of Oklahoma City, after a two mile-wide tornado tore through the area late this Monday afternoon.

Nearly 200 thousand people were in the path of this storm, which the national weather service believes packed winds of 166 to 200 miles per hour.

Two schools and a whole swath of homes were completely leveled.

Two survivors of the Oklahoma tornado describe the twister to CNN's Nick Valencia.
