Several rescued after being trapped in shelter amid Oklahoma tornado

Several people, including a baby, were rescued after being trapped in a storm shelter as a tornado struck Wednesday night in Seminole, Oklahoma. The brother station KOCO spoke with a resident who said there were 10 people in the shelter at the time. A tree and a roof were above the storm shelter. During Wednesday’s extensive coverage of the severe weather, a KOCO viewer tweeted to the station, alerting it to the state of emergency. KOCO notified the authorities who helped them all get out safely. Soldier Eric Foster of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that this is one way in which social media can be used as a lifeline. “People trapped in the storm shelter came through social media because they could not use their phones. “This is a great lesson for us to move forward and approach that way, if you can,” Foster said.
