  MOORE, Okla. (AP) - A mix of volunteers and first responders are combing through debris in an Oklahoma City suburb looking for survivors.
 
     The city of Moore, Okla., was hit by a mile-wide tornado on Monday afternoon.
 
     People wearing neon-green vests were joined by residents in the search through rubble. Neighborhoods are flattened and homes blown apart.
 
     Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department says an elementary school took a direct hit from the mile-wide tornado, but did not say which school was hit.
 
     There were no immediate reports of injuries. 
 
     Shards of wood and pieces of insulation were strewn everywhere. Television footage also showed first responders picking through rubble and twisted metal.
