"We'll continue to hope that we find life this morning and throughout the day, and we'll continue to recover at the same time," he said. "This tornado, to put in perspective, it'd be like a two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community. So with the schools leveled, neighborhoods are wiped out, businesses are flattened, it's significant, and the clean-up will be for some time."
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Tuesday the damage from the tornado that ripped through her state is bigger than anything she's seen in her 23 years in office, and Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb said it was "like a two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community."
