Officials had revised the death toll downward from 51 to 24 on Tuesday after the state medical examiner said some victims may have been double-counted in the confusion immediately after the storm. Get more information about the tornadoes on CBSNews.com

Original story:
According to the CBS News, a giant tornado, at least a mile wide, killed at least 51 people, 20 of them children, as it stormed through Moore, Oklahoma, a suburb of Oklahoma City yesterday afternoon. The tornado flattened homes and tore through schools. Those injured have fled to hospitals, while many people still remained trapped in the debris. Emergency responders are moving as fast as they can through heavy traffic and damage on the roadways.
