Oklahoma tornado rescue effort nears end

Emergency crews' search in the ruins left by the gigantic tornado that killed two dozen people in Oklahoma on Monday is almost over, say officials.

The fire department said their goal was to conduct three searches of each location just to be sure.

Heavy rain has been hampering the rescue effort but the work is expected to be finished by nightfall.

Nick Childs reports.
