At least 37 dead as mile-wide tornado with winds of 320kph wipes out Oklahoma City suburb


A monstrous tornado as much as a mile wide roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs Monday, flattening entire neighborhoods with winds up to 320 kph, setting buildings on fire and landing a direct blow on an elementary school. At least 37 people were reported killed.

The storm laid waste to scores of buildings in Moore, south of the city. Block after block of the community lay in ruins. Homes were crushed into piles of broken wood. Cars and trucks were left crumpled on the roadside.

The National Weather Service issued an initial finding that the tornado was an EF-4 on the enhanced Fujita scale, the second most-powerful type of twister. (AP Photo/The Oklahoman, Paul Hellstern; AP Photo Sue Ogrocki; AP Photo/KFOR-TV)
