Oklahomans witness tornado from ND oil patch
May 22, 2013 12:15 GMT
WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- People from Moore, Okla., who were working in the North Dakota oil patch when a tornado devastated their city say waiting for word on whether their families were safe was a stressful time.
Monday's tornado killed at least 24 people, destroyed countless homes and an elementary school, killing seven children inside.
Contract pilot Liz Lillard was in Williston on Monday and watched a live feed of the tornado pass over her children's day care in Moore. She tells The Forum (http://bit.ly/193Q4dn ) the two hours it took to learn that her two children were safe was "torture."
Jason Kindred also was working in North Dakota on Monday when the tornado hit Moore. He says his wife and two children also are safe, but they almost were in the tornado's path.
