Oklahoma storm damage costs could top 2 billion dollars

OKLAHOMA   --  The Oklahoma Insurance Department says the cost from the massive tornado could top two billion dollars.

But money won't replace the lives lost or the personal belongings destroyed when the funnel cloud tore through this Oklahoma City suburb.

24-people lost their lives in Monday's monster twister.
Ten children are among the victims.
Seven of them died at the Plaza Towers Elementary School, which had no basement shelter.
