CNN’s Brooke Baldwin talks to Jackie Sing, who was born and raised in Moore, Oklahoma. His house was severely damaged but is still standing. Sing said he’d gladly trade places with neighbors who lost homes, especially a young couple with a newborn baby.
From Moore, Oklahoma, CNN's Brian Todd spoke with CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour about why a lack of tornado safe rooms for public schools apparently has played a role in the casualties for some children.
Todd attended a press briefing with the Mayor of Moore earlier today who was asked to confirm that some of the children that perished did so in schools without safe rooms. Although schools do have drills for weather emergencies, the mayor acknowledged that funding played a role in recent years to not build safe rooms for public schools.
AMANPOUR airs daily on CNN International at 3:00pm and 5:00pm Eastern. The full transcript for this program may be found here.
