MOORE, Okla. (KSDK) - A St. Louis woman was hoping for the best after Monday's storms, but on Tuesday she found out her mother had been killed.

Angeletta Santiago was planning to move to Oklahoma City Tuesday morning to be closer to her mother, who was suffering from several health issues.

Angeletta's mother, 45-year-old Tewauna Robinson, lived in Moore, Okla. near Plaza Towers Elementary, one of the school devastated by the EF-5 tornado that ravaged the city.

Angeletta says she had a short phone conversation with her mother around 2:30 p.m. Monday, during the storm. Tewauna told Angeletta she was seeking shelter in her closet, and that the tornado had touched down. She told Angeletta "I love you," and then hung up.

That was last she heard from her mother. Angeletta took to Facebook and did everything should could think of to find her mom.

Tewauna's home was destroyed. On Wednesday, Angeletta found her mother's fiance, Leslie Johnson, also died in the tornado.
