No Moore residents will be allowed in to the city overnight, trooper Betsy Randolph said. Authorities are trying to get as many residents as possible out of the city and into shelters.

Search teams and patrols are combing the city looking for injured persons who may be regaining consciousness and are trapped in the rubble, she said.

Parents of missing children, including Plaza Tower students, are being taken to the First Baptist Church at N 27 and Fretz, Randolph said.

"We're trying to keep hope alive," she said.

Randolph said the number of deaths will not be updated overnight.
