Live video at the link:

http://www.nbcnews.com/video/nbcnews.com/51943719

An elementary school got hit hard. No word on fatalities yet.

The tornado is still in progress - about to hit Paul's Valley as I write this.

Now they're saying just one teacher and one student is safe out of 75 people.

Damn.

No.
The governor was on the phone with CNN (he's in Washington DC now) and was asked that same question. He said that almost no one has basements, but all (or most) buildings have 'safe rooms'. His wife was home and they have no basement either.
Apparently, the safest place in the school was the hall, which had thick walls. But no basements in either school.
No word on the other school or their kids.

Looking at the video the school got blasted right down to the foundation. There's no hallway left there.

They might want to reconsider the money they saved by skimping on the old fashioned tornado shelter.

CNN is reporting that according to a witness, most are out and alive. They transported to a church.
4, 5 and 6 grade students are all accounted for, according to the 6th grade teacher.

Anchors at CNN affiliate KSN were forced to evacuate during a live broadcast as a tornado approached Wichita, Kansas.
