New, citizen-shot footage continues to surface of Monday's deadly tornado in Oklahoma.

A clip that ABC News featured on Wednesday shows teachers and students huddling in terror at Briarwood Elementary School in Moore, Okla., one of two schools leveled by the storm. As the F-5 twister rips through the building, children scream in horror while teachers attempt to calm them.

ABC News reports that the footage was taken by fifth-grade teacher Robin Dziedzic, who can be heard yelling "It's almost over" to the panicking children.

After the worst is done, the footage shows a gaping hole in the roof of the building as a teacher cries, "Oh my God."

No one died at the school, but seven students were found dead at nearby Plaza Towers Elementary School. 10 children were among the 24 total killed by the tornado.

Briarwood Elementary was also home to several highly emotional reunions between tornado survivors that were caught on camera Monday afternoon.
