Cyclone Kills 33 in Oklahoma City Last Friday Night
A cyclone struck Oklahoma City last Friday night, wiping away 75 homes, killing 33 people and wounding 71 others.
It struck southwest of the packing houses and demolished eight blocks of medium-valued houses.
Soldiers from Will Rogers field were first to give aid, then within an hour the Red Cross was on hand with shelter, food, bandages, and medicine.
When one of those twisters strikes the ground, it looks as if nothing can stand in their path very long.
