Oklahoma Tornadoes 2013

On May 20th, one of the deadliest twisters in known history touched down in Moore, Oklahoma, a suburb of Oklahoma City. The Tornado caused catastrophic damage to homes (over 13,000 of them were destroyed), infrastructure, schools and a hospital. Take a look at these powerful images showing the aftermath of the deadly Tornado as found on Flickr. The damage is estimated to cost an excess of $2 billion, but the physical damage is nothing compared to the the human loss: At least 24 fatalities, including 9 children and hundreds of injured people were reported.
