    This is horrific...in an instant everything around these people they had known disappeared. I can imagine what a state of shock they are in letting everything sink in. And those poor kids..they must have been terrified and know their parents will have to explain to them that even though they made it out alive their friends didn't. SYA definitely hits closer to home after this tragedy...very thankful it is the current single rather than BA right now. I wonder how she felt singing it last night.

    Woke up at 4 am and turned on the news only to be completely and utterly devastated. 51 with approximately 40 still missing and unaccounted for? Heartbroken.

    So they are changing the initial 51 deaths to 24 as the Medical Examiner said they doubled the count of bodies. Odd.

    But that does not include the additional 40 deaths reported last night that have not been processed yet. I guess they can't officially count them until they arrive and get processed at Medical Examiner's office. But they will be.

    Prayers to everyone in Oklahoma, especially the Moore area. This is horrific. Hope everyone who lost loved ones, but especially the parents of the poor kids who died in the school, can find a way to cope.

    The song "Blown Away" becomes more than a song now since the Tornado in Oklahoma.

    Yeah, I'll be honest, I haven't listened to Blown Away for the past couple of days. Don't get me wrong, it's my all time favorite Carrie song, it just hurts a little too much to hear about tornadoes and Oklahoma at the moment. I guess it's a good thing this didn't happen when BA was the current single, it would have been a little too close to home.

    I am confused cuz they keep changing the body count. First it was 51 with another 40 to be added once processed. Tgen today the medical examiner said someone doubled the count and it is really 24 not 51.... (Will go up once other 40 peopke are added).

    I guess I feel bad for the families who thought it was 91 dead as they may have assumed their loved ones were lost too. They need to be very precise before they release the numbers.

    sorry- not pointing fingers or blaming anyone. Just confused.

    Glad the number is lower though- wonderful news.9

    The Govenor said that some had been taken to funeral homes and they have to find everyone. With all the confusion, power out, phone lines busy, gas lines vulnerable, traffic jams, rain most of today etc, etc....I can understand that they don't have every thing exact yet.

    I heard SYA and all I could think about was Oklahoma.

    Vince Gill posted this message on his website:

    "Throughout the history of Oklahoma, there have been more than enough catastrophes to challenge the grit and backbone of the people of Oklahoma. This tragedy will be another opportunity to see first-hand the character of our people. Whether itís a Dust Bowl, a depression, a horrific storm or a bombing, we always endure. To those who have lost family, friends, homes, businesses and, saddest of all, schools, our hearts are with you, and we all stand beside you. -Vince Gill"

    Kelly Willis's home town is Lawton - I'm not sure if that was near the tornado path, but she tweeted to say her family were safe. Her brother-in-law, Charlie Robison is collecting money and personal care items at his concerts, and plans to drive his tour bus with supplies to the area and lend the bus itself for rescue purposes if it's required.

    Natalie Maines tweeted:

    "Peace and love, Oklahoma, peace and love"
