Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) on Tuesday morning said emergency personal were frantically searching for survivors after a massive tornado ravaged her state, calling the damage “the worst I’ve ever seen.”

“The tornado itself was very, very wide. It just wiped out miles of areas and homes and businesses. It’s probably the worst I’ve ever seen,” said Fallin on CBS’s “This Morning.”

Fallin said the priority for emergency workers was to find any survivors in the devastation.”Of course our hearts were broken yesterday and the first thing I told my cabinet secretaries and all the emergency personnel is find the people. Do everything we can to get as many rescue squads out there. Let’s bring in search and rescue dogs. Whatever we need. We’ve got to find the people immediately and that’s been our biggest goal through the last hours since the storm has struck,” she said on Fox News.
