"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Devastation and Destruction in the wake of a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Tornado survivor Michael Welch: "I'm blessed to be alive"

As the people of Moore, Okla. continued their search and rescue among the devastation left in the wake of a massive two-mile wide tornado that tore through the town earlier in the afternoon, late Monday night "Piers Morgan Live" spoke to Michael Welch who witnessed the deadly storm that left at least 24 dead including nine children.

"It's definitely scary," said Welch who was able to record close-range video of the tornado as it touched down. "It's just one of those things I'll remember my entire life. I don't think very many people see it that close, so I feel very blessed to be alive."

  • Rescue efforts continue at Plaza Towers Elementary school in Moore, Okla.

CNN's George Howell also joined the program and spoke to a worker who was helping with rescue and recovery efforts at Plaza Towers Elementary school, one of the many buildings that suffered destruction and fatalities from the storm.

"There's nothing that your mind can really prepare you for," said the worker. "It's heartbreaking to know that we've still got kids over there that's possibly alive, but we don't know."

"[We're] pressing forward," said the worker about himself and the other volunteers and first responders who planned to continue to work through the night. "Hopefully, you know, we'll hear just some glimpse and we can help some child."

    That teacher whose leg was impaled should divulge the name of her insurance company that refuses to cover her out-of-network charges for her emergency hospital visit with a table leg impaled through her calf!!! American needs to know what company this is!

    Hey Piers,

    since when are you the journalist who is not using the given info to ask further Qs?
    I also refer to that insurance company that does not cover different hospital....
    You should have asked more questions and go on and contact that company for the show, give info to the public and also shame them publicly.
    Also, how about question to proper authority why this state that so often has tornadoes does not require schools to have public shelters within?

    To: Piers Morgan –

    You stated on your live broadcast this evening, that you would post the link to donate funds for the very brave
    single mom teacher. Who you interviewed by phone. RE: Her insurance company, not covering her very expensive
    emergency surgical medical costs. Where on your website page, Sir – is the hyperlink to donate money to the fund
    that she had made you aware of during your interview with her? It is no where to be found on your CNN website page!
