According to an NBC News report, Dawn revealed the destruction of a deadly swarm of twisters that struck shell-shocked Oklahoma late Friday amid new fears about "life-threatening" flash floods.

Five tornadoes — one a half-mile wide — ripped into the Oklahoma City area Friday evening, killing nine people and injuring scores more.

The Oklahoma Office of the Chief of Medical Examiner tells NBC News seven adults and two children are confirmed dead, including a mother and her small child. At least five people killed were in vehicles and may have been trying to flee as dark clouds gathered and warning sirens wailed, authorities said.

Marcus Jolly, 32, of El Reno told The Oklahoman newspaper the scene along Interstate 40 "was a war zone. There were semis turned over and skeletons of buildings remaining.”
