We were able to tour a Sand Springs mobile home park on Thursday in the daylight after a tornado wiped out much of it.
The tornado killed one person and injured dozens of others and destroyed several homes.
One mobile home flipped over and landed on another. It is a reflection of what we saw throughout the whole park, which you can see in the attached video.
Trailers are leveled. Others are stacked one on top of the other. Trees are snapped. Debris is everywhere. It is the hardest hit area in the Tulsa metro.
1 person died.
2 people are in critical condition.
30 or so people have minor injuries.
All morning, first responders sifted thought the debris to make sure no one else was still out there to be rescued.
So far, crews have not found anyone. All of the residents have been evacuated from the area and are not allowed in yet. The Red Cross and Salvation Army have been assisting the residents and providing them with food and shelter.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has declared a disaster in 25 of the state's 77 counties. Fallin will be in Sand Springs accessing the damage at 2 p.m.
We'll have her update in our later newscasts and on NewsOn6.com.
