MOORE, Oklahoma -- The stories of survival are incredible. From cellars to closets to bathrooms, residents in Moore hunkered down and prayed for the best.

"It was a huge adrenaline rush. I could hear it coming from a distance. They say it sounds like a freight train, but when it got here it was just a lot of rumbling. But the thing that got me was things started hitting the house hard enough to shake the house.  We were in the bathtub and we felt the house shaking," Daniel Grableman said. "I felt my ears popping and it lasted about 30 to 40 seconds and it was over, and we were happy."

The first Tornado Warning was sent out around 2:40 p.m. Monday. About 16 minutes later a tornado ripped a 12-mile gash through Oklahoma.
