Students Return To School Just Months After Deadly Tornado

MOORE, Okla. (August 16, 2013)--Students who lost classmates in a powerful tornado three months ago in an Oklahoma City suburb returned to school Friday, eager to reunite with friends, but worried about the next storm.

Briarwood and Plaza Towers Elementary Schools were destroyed when an EF-5 tornado hit Moore on May 20.

Two-dozen people died, including seven students at the Plaza Towers School.

Parents walked many of their children to classes at a temporary location Friday and cried as they walked away.

One parent, Julie Lewis, said her son Zack wanted to know who would pick him up from school the next time the weather turns bad.

Cameron Richardson, a new fourth-grader, had trouble sleeping because a storm swept through the area overnight and carries an Associated Press photo of his rescue on his cell phone.
