As dramatic weather peppered the state of Oklahoma, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Live" dedicated the entire hour to live coverage of a reported four tornadoes bearing down on an already ravaged heartland community.
Joining host Piers Morgan by phone, Betsy Randolph described the "state of play" from her perspective:
"Absolutely chaos. We have got multiple crashes, extending on I-40 west of Oklahoma City from El Reno all the way across the Oklahoma City metro area as the storm tracks," explained the Highway Patrol trooper. "We have power lines down across I-40, overturned semi's, crashes, just multiple. Too many to even count at this point."
Storm warnings sent tens of thousands of residents fleeing for safety via automobile, resulting in dangerous traffic jams on Oklahoma's various roadways. Randolph offered advice to those stuck as the tornadoes approached:
"We know from the storms in the past that if you're not underground, the chances of your survival are very slim," she told the host. "If you can lay on your belly in a low-lying area, a ditch, along the side of the road, that's your best bet. That's the best thing that you can do."
