Dr. Stephanie Barnhardt of the Moore Medical Center describes sheltering from the EF5 tornado. Dr. Barnhardt says doctors were still treating patients until they saw the tornado was headed in their direction.

"The power went out and at that point, we told the patients to get the mattresses," Dr. Barnhardt says. "We were handing out blankets and sat on the floor and ducked for cover."
