At least 51 people, including at least 20 children, were killed when a massive tornado struck an area outside Oklahoma City on Monday afternoon, officials said.
The tornado was estimated to be at least two miles wide at one point as it moved through Moore, in the southern part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. Below is Raw video of the tornado and aftermath.
UPDATE: Lil Wayne may be in better condition than originally reported by TMZ, as he is now conscious and with friends and family.
Lil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, it doesn’t look good. Wayne is being prepared for his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.
Lil Wayne’s mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles — and we’re told all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.
Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
Lil Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes. Several people are at Wayne’s bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably. There’s evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
Sources said Wanye’s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

After sending snowbirds to licence offices in a panic, Florida now says it won’t enforce a requirement for all non-U.S. residents to obtain an International Driving Permit.
Earlier today, employees at CAA offices fielded an unprecedented flurry of phone calls and inquiries from people planning to go to Florida after the surprise realization that since Jan. 1, all non-U.S. residents need an International Driving Permit.
“We were informed only two days ago, but it was on the radio today so everyone’s here,” said a harried employee taking names from those in line to get the international licence.
On Jan. 1, Florida passed statute 322.04, a new law mandating the international permit, a paper document written in 10 languages.
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV), the purpose of the new law is for everyone to have “a licence in a language that police officers can understand.”
An IDP is the internationally recognized licence people need when they rent a car and drive in Europe. On an average summer day, with vacationers going abroad, CAA-Quebec’s large office on Drummond normally issues 60 to 75 of these a day, but very rarely in the winter, the staff said.
To get an international driving licence, you need a valid driving permit, $25 and a passport-size photograph.
If you don’t have the photo handy, CAA can take one for you for $13. Grand total: $38.74, taxes in.
“The intent of the change in Florida law regarding the International Driving Permit was to aid law enforcement in Florida when interacting with drivers holding a licence in a foreign language,” a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Highway Safety said Thursday.
Well it didn’t suck as bad as these guys. Possibly the worst live event coverage ever.
This clip shows a montage of “highlights,” filled with abrupt cuts, throwing to nobody, unintentionally live microphones, inability to know/care if it was midnight and pretty much every other error that could have made it live on the air. Hosted by Jamie Kennedy, and former MTV Canada host Jessi Cruickshank, it was an epic disaster that unfolded live on LA indie station KDOC.
Peple who did not show up that were supposed to: Mario Lopez, Eva Longoria, Joey Lawrence and Jennifer Love Hewitt
At one point, the show interviews one of Hugh Hefner‘s ex-girlfriends holding a Carl’s Jr. cheeseburger because the burger chain sponsored this awesomeness.
Macy Gray sounded stoned as hell and didn’t know what time it was.
On multiple occasions, Kennedy and/or the show’s producers ask on a hot mic whether the show is currently live (by the way, it was) while liberally peppering in some profanity for the sake of it. The first few seconds of one return from commercial break began with Kennedy on-stage looking around confusedly while off-camera voices asked “Where’s my stage manager?” and declared: “Don’t fucking give me shit.”
The control room couldn’t seem to figure out how to press the right buttons and so interviews were cut off mid-sentence, camera shots sometimes never changed, random Carl’s Jr. ads ran during the middle of broadcast, and a video of Jamie Kennedy at a comedy club took about 10 seconds to load.
One random woman in the crowd figured out how to read teleprompter behind co-host Stu Stone and mimicked his read for an entire two minutes. Sheer brilliance.
Some guy dropped a big ol’ “motherfucker” live on-air.
Oh hey, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony seemingly missing the memo about “not cursing on air,” because… umm… they cursed. A lot.
Kennedy tries his best at hitting on a drunk black woman: “You should go white, because it’ll keep your vagina very tight.” Also on-air.
The show ends with a fight on-stage behind the hosts… and then silence as the credits roll. Awesome.
By the way up and coming video people, this is probably an example of what not to do.
