Today’s Show Notes: Tuesday, 21st May 2013.

(CNN) The scene -- block after block of flattened homes and businesses, the gutted remains of a hospital and hits on two elementary schools -- left even seasoned veterans of Oklahoma’s infamous tornadoes reeling.
  • The state medical examiner’s office said 24 people were confirmed dead, including nine children. Earlier reports of at least 51 deaths were erroneous.
  • At least 100 people have been pulled alive from the rubble by rescuers.
  • Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb likened the destruction to a “two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community.”
  • Meteorologists say the storm system that spawned this tornado isn’t over yet and more is expected.

“Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped. And he said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.” In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.”
Job 1:20-22
