Kimberly one of the biggest concern is is really over communications you mentioned that they don't know how many people are missing that's where they're having such a difficult time talking to each other.
Phone lines are down cell lines are very difficult though we are able to get checks in and out.
But coordinating an effort to find out.
Who should have been where and where those people are now has been virtually impossible right now it's up to residents to try to.
Explain to authorities who in their family may be missing and that's a difficult task -- well.
Much of the effort today is on salvaging what people -- they're letting some people back into their neighborhoods to get things like.
Medicine and and other things that they need and can't purchase we went into one of those neighborhoods is to see the destruction this afternoon.
This is just on the edge of where the storm hits and easy -- the right you'll be able to see what's left around here see what happen to these trees.
Just splintered and twisted and broken away with a metal thrown into them it's like this everywhere you go.
That tree over there and house after house after house there's something left and these are probably -- be torn down it's got to be paid into the left over there.
We'll see an area where.
The home just obliterated.
You can go to any spot in this neighborhood.
And for blocks and blocks and and literally miles and miles and this is what it looks like not isolated damage but widespread with people coming through the neighborhood.
Trying to find what they -- to salvage.
The day after the storm struck.
And reality sets -- and it's cold it's lightning it's windy the storm has just passed through and local television stations are warning.
Another hail storm may be on the way.
The folks on the porch over here looking to hear that there's not going to be a tornado today not in this area.
The danger for others has not passed.
But it it did rain for hours on end and they were expecting golf ball size hail in this in this particular area luckily didn't come here.
But in other areas around Oklahoma City it was a very violent afternoon of course the storms have moved on.
The rescue and recovery efforts continue here cleanup will go on for weeks months I dare -- even years as residents come back.
To see what's left of what was Kimberly back to you.
