The DAILY MAIL posted the faces of those who lost thier lives and those still missing following the violent EF-5 tornado that ravaged Moore, Oklahoma on Monday. 24 people are confirmed dead, nine of them children.
The EF-5 tornado packed winds that exceeded 200 miles per hour, left a trail of destruction 17 miles long and 1.3 miles wide.
While there were joyous, tearful reunions, we wanted to remember those who died including a high school teacher and young students- two that 'inseparable' according to the girls' parents. Authorities said, the two girls were found 'clinging to each other' and that comforted the parents.
To help the surviving victims, Gleaning For the World is collecting supplies at Sam's on Wards Road in Lynchburg today and tomorrow from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and at Walmart on Old Forest Road Friday from 10-7. Stop by to donate personal care items, baby products, cleaning supplies and candy.
An Oklahoma Emergency Management spokesperson said a flyover of the affected area on Tuesday showed that 2,400 homes were damaged or obliterated, with an estimated 10,000 people affected. - Daily Mail
