While Midwesterners see tornadoes almost every spring, few twisters leave the magnitude of damage that yesterday's tornado dropped on Oklahoma. Dozens are dead, untold numbers are injured, and damage is likely to be in the billions of dollars.

Harold Brooks, a research meteorologist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory, has been monitoring Oklahoma storms for years. 

Michael Cross, state capitol bureau chief for KOSU in Oklahoma, has been covering yesterday's tornado extensively.
