We're still in shock over the havoc the tornado has reeked in Oklahoma!
With the death toll at 24 and climbing, there is NO question the tornado that struck Oklahoma City suburbs — like Moore, Oklahoma — at more than 200mph was one of the most brutal tornados in history, but NOW we have footage of just how destructive the powerful natural killer was.
See the jaw-dropping videos of the lethal natural disaster and the painful aftermath…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
This is so sad!
Zach Sobiech was just a normal 14-year-old teenager living in Minnesota when his doctors diagnosed him with osteosarcoma - a rare form of bone cancer.
After a long fight with the cancer, doctors told Zach he only had a few months to live. Zach turned to music and recorded a song called Clouds, a song about dealing with death, which has since gone viral and has been viewed by over three million fans!
So it is with a heavy heart that we bear the sad news that Zach passed away on Monday morning. He was 18 years old.
Here's what the Children's Cancer Research Fund said in a statement:
This is so unbearably tragic!!
Mother nature struck Oklahoma with very little warning earlier today, demolishing good chunks of Oklahoma City suburbs and killing at least 37 people!!
With winds reportedly in excess of 200mph and with a base over a mile wide (above), there is an unfathomable amount of debris and destruction in the tornado's wake.
Glenn Lewis, the mayor of Moore — an outlier of OKC — said:
“The whole city looks like a debris field.”
It is likely way too early to properly get a handle on property damage and human causalities.
Our hearts break for the countless number of people affected by this vicious force of nature.
We will keep you updated as more information is gathered.

Ray Manzarek, the legendary keyboardist of The Doors, passed away Monday afternoon after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer.
The voice and face and bare chest of the band may have been Jim Morrison, but the brains behind the outfit was Ray.
Ray helped give the band several huge hits with his catchy melodies. After Jim's death, Ray became a solo performer, music producer, and author.
In 2002, Ray reunited with The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger to continue playing their classics. Robby said:
Frankly, we're already in tears just thinking about this!
We doubt we're alone when we say that Jenni Rivera has rarely been too far from our thoughts ever since she tragically lost her life in a plane crash on December 9th.

According to reports,
Dick Trickle was a legend in the NASCAR community, and he was recently found dead a cemetery from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. While he DID leave a note, the contents have not made public — so there's no way of knowing why he did what he did.
His brother, though, believes Dick took his own life because he couldn't
This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.
Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.
Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.
We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.
Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.
