MOORE, Okla. (WATE) - 6 News Anchor/Reporter Kristin Farley was in Oklahoma reporting from some of the worst tornado devastation in the area on Tuesday evening.

A massive EF-5 tornado tore a 12-mile path of destruction that killed 24 people, including nine children, and destroyed Plaza Towers Elementary School and Briarwood Elementary School in Moore. The National Weather Service confirmed that winds during the tornado exceeded 200 miles per hour.

Residents of Telephone Road in Moore told 6 News that on Monday only rescue crews were allowed in this area of Moore.

On Tuesday, many families returned for the first time to look through what's left of their homes.  But due to spotty cell phone service, communication has been difficult, if not impossible.

Two sisters 6 News spoke with said they split up from the rest of their family so they could account for everyone.  The two girls are searching for their aunt and uncle.
