    They are saying the gym roof collapsed on a bunch of kids. :eek: It sounds absolutely awful. Please pray b/c all of this is headed towards our area and will be moving through the southeast through the evening.

    OMG. This is so incredibly sad. You know, parents send their kids off to school, thinking they'll see them at the end of the day. :(

    This is just awful. :(

    Our local NBC affiliate has reporters on the ground in Enterprise and they keep saying they don't know the extent of any injuries yet. They interviewed one lady, though, who said a whole wall collapsed on some kids and some children were pinned, in addition to the gym roof falling in. It doesn't sound good at all.

    NBC affiliate reporter just interviewed a young soldier who said he pulled out "two dead little girls" at the school and that they have a "full morgue" there.

    OMG. :(
