Oklahoma Tornado

Views From Above - 22 May 2013
Images of aerial views showing the path of destruction left by the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma. Rescuers went building to building in search of victims and survivors picked through the rubble of their shattered homes on Tuesday, a day after the massive tornado tore through the suburb, wiping out blocks of houses and killing at least 24 people.

The death toll of 24 was lower than initially feared, but nine children were among the dead, including seven who died at Plaza Towers Elementary School, which took a direct hit on Monday in the deadliest tornado to strike the United States in two years. About 240 people were injured.

Emergency workers pulled more than 100 survivors from the debris of homes, schools and a hospital after the tornado ripped through the Oklahoma City region with winds exceeding 200 miles per hour (320 kph), leaving a trail of destruction 17 miles (23 km) long by 1.3 miles (2 km) wide.
