'Absolute destruction' in Moore after tornado

At least 24 people are confirmed dead, including seven children, and many are missing after a tornado tore through Oklahoma City, US officials say.

Worst hit was Moore, south of the city, where neighbourhoods were flattened and schools destroyed by winds of up to 200mph (320km/h).

Silas Allen is a reporter with The Oklahoman Newspaper. He told the BBC's Mike Embley what he has seen on the ground in Moore.
