Oklahoma tornado aftermath on Instagram

CNN anchors and reporters are on the ground in Oklahoma, reporting on the devastation caused by the deadly tornado Monday and the search and rescue efforts under way.

CNN's John King and Anderson Cooper, who are both visiting areas hit by the tornado, have been sharing powerful images of the catastrophic damage on Instagram.

    To Wolf: "The worst possible moment for an atheist is when he/she feels grateful and has no one to thank."

    I hated that Wolf Blitzer asked a victim who is an atheist, if she called to God. I am an atheist too, I was not when I was younger, but the way religion is pushed on us, made me an atheist. I wish for all the victims the best and hope they recover.

    Hey Wolfie Boy,

    Did they also thank god for bringing the tornado to their town? What kind of god would do that?

    Please replace Wolf Blitzer as host of The Situation Room and any other program he may host. Asking a woman, "...do you thank the lord..." is gallingly inappropriate.

    Nice work Wolf. An atheist with enough respect for everyone, and you with the class of a CBN/Fox News huckster.

    Wolf Blitzer and CNN....Horrific disaster at Moore, OK has impacted all its residents....why not share the stories from entire community with some minority families being interviewed ( native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic, Asian) as well. Good reporting...can become great reporting with more diversity. Lee Raskin, JD Baltimore, MD

    Being a life long time west coast resident, please explain to me about the children who drowned. Where did that much water come from?

      The water pipes burst and sadly that's how the children drowned.

        Every time I hear news about children I couldn't help but cry... How old we're the children?

    Am mighty glad at the heroic attitude of the teachers. This limited the number of casualty on the kids. The first responders were marvelous as usual.
