(RNN) -- Another large tornado has touched down south of Oklahoma City a day after long track tornadoes devastated Shawnee and Edmond, OK.

Tornadoes touched down in four states, causing severe damage and several casualties.

The large rain-wrapped tornado tore through Moore, OK, near where an EF-5 tornado ripped through the area in 1999.

KOTV reports a local elementary school took a direct hit, where children are reportedly trapped inside.

The NWS office in Norman described the tornado as large and violent.

The first images emerging from Moore show demolished homes, smashed cars, downed power lines and scattered debris.

KOCO broadcast a slow rotating cloud that slowly extended down towards the ground before taking the shape of a funnel.

A storm spotter told CNN that the tornado is three quarters of a mile wide.

The National Weather Service tweeted at 3:03 p.m. "This is as serious as it gets for SW OKC and Moore. Please seek shelter now!"

The Oklahoma House of Representatives canceled any afternoon sessions.
