Tragedy along tornado alley; damage and recovery – Ed Lavandera reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

Oklahoma had barely started clearing the rubble from a monstrous tornado two weeks ago when another rash of twisters plowed through this ill-fated swath of Tornado Alley.

At least 16 people are dead across the state from a vicious storm that spawned at least five tornadoes there late Friday, officials said Monday.

And the death toll may rise further.

Authorities will resume their search Monday for six people still missing, including four who sought shelter in storm drains, Oklahoma City Fire Chief Keith Bryant said.
