That piece of news came from Sgt. Jeremy Lewis at midday on Tuesday after workers had spent the night gently searching through the rubble that was once Plaza Tower elementary school.
“We don’t believe there is anyone else left in the school,” Lewis told KRMG news.
Unfortunately not everyone survived the impact.
“There were seven fatalities in the school,” he said, looking grim.
There was also a child killed at Briarwood elementary school not far away.
The schools were devastated by what has been classified as an EF5 twister with winds over 200 miles per hour.
Early reports had said as many as 40 children were still missing and many were thought to be in the rubble.
But as more information began to come in it seems that many were with family and some may have been hurriedly taken out of the building before the tornado smashed through the neighborhood.
The scene around the school was almost surreal as lines of human conveyor belts were set up to lift, pass and remove piece after piece of the debris hoping to find someone alive under it.
Sgt. Lewis also confirmed that the search efforts in the city were paying off.
“There numerous people found alive overnight,” he began. “Actually over 100,” he said, wrapping up.
