Chris Brown, Demi Lovato + More React to Oklahoma Tornado Tragedy
Yesterday’s (May 20) tornado that ripped through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore is a painful reminder to all just how powerful Mother Nature can be. According to ABC News, the two-mile wide twister has killed at least 24 people, an esitmate which was just lowered by the medical examiner from the original estimate of 91. Tragically, seven of those casualties are children as the tornado tore through two elementary schools yesterday afternoon.
As the rest of the nation is thinking of Oklahoma and the devastation, so too are celebs. OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder was especially shaken by the events, as he is a native of Tulsa, Okla. himself. He posted:
