Prayers to those in Oklahoma

Moore, Oklahoma (CNN) -- Search-and-rescue crews with dogs went through smashed houses and crushed cars on Tuesday, looking for signs of life a day after a monster tornado pulverized a vast swath of suburbs of Oklahoma City.

No new survivors or bodies have been found since the early hours after the tornado carved a trail as much as a mile wide and 17 miles long on Monday afternoon.

At least 24 people, including nine children, have been killed, according to the state medical examiner's office. More than 230 people were injured, according to authorities.
