Tv - Mike & Molly Finale Scrapped After Tornado Tragedy

U.S. Tv bosses have pulled the tornado-themed season finale of Mike & Molly after a series of storms devastated areas of Oklahoma on Monday (21May13).

The last episode of season three featured the storyline of a tornado hitting Chicago, Illinois in the Melissa MCCarthy comedy, but it has been cut from schedules.

A statement from Cbs reads, “Due to the tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight’s season finale of Mike & Molly, which has a related storyline."

A repeat will be aired in its place.

A huge twister ripped through a suburb of Oklahoma City on Monday in a second day of storms.

At least 10 people were killed when the powerful tornado blasted the area ripping roofs off buildings and levelling homes and schools and locals have been without power.

Students and teachers at the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma really felt the devastation. They were trapped in debris after the storm hit. Rescuers have rushed to the scene in a bid to keep the casualty count down.

More stormy weather is expected.
