Oklahoma Reporter Breaks Down, Cries on Camera at Tornado Scene

by at . Comments

After a horrific tornado tore through the Oklahoma City area on Monday, killing 24 people and injuring 233, with the casualty toll likely to rise.

The loss of life and catastrophic level of destruction in Moore, Okla., brought countless people to tears - TV reporter Lance West among them.

West, a reporter for KFOR, was in Moore and confirmed on live TV that there were children inside Plaza Towers Elementary School when the Oklahoma tornado hit.

West lamented the massive damage and "absolute chaos" in Moore.

"I've never seen anything like this in my 18 years covering tornadoes in Oklahoma City. This is without question the most horrific ... I've never seen ..."

He then trailed off, and for very good reason, broke down.


My heart goes to the victims of the horrific tornado. The GOD of all creation will heal your hearts and minds.


he studied to be a drama actor, folks.

Seriously? He STUDIED to be in drama, not be a drama actor. I have met that reporter in person, he is kind and a human just like the rest of us. Seeing that devastation on TV is a lot different than seeing it up close and personal
