Oklahoma Tornado Tragedy – Rockers Offer Condolences via Twitter
Today (May 20), disaster hit Oklahoma, as a two-mile wide tornado left devastating damage, killing more than 50 people in its path. The deadly twister, which hit speeds up to 200 miles per hour, struck in the suburbs of Oklahoma City, and tragically a number of young children are among the deceased as an area elementary school in Moore, Okla., was destroyed.
The story is still developing, and sadly the death toll is expected to rise, as the devastation is widespread among several counties in Oklahoma. Those who would like to help can make donations to the Red Cross at this location.
Upon hearing the tragic news, several rock acts have expressed their concern and condolences via Twitter. Among the artists sending their thoughts and prayers to the people of Oklahoma are Slash, Shinedown, David Draiman and Papa Roach. Below are their tweets:
