On the afternoon of May 20, 2013, a catastrophic EF5 (wind estimated 210 mph [340 km/h]) tornado struck the town of Moore, Oklahoma, USA, killing 24 people and injuring another 377. The tornado was on the ground for 39 minutes and left a 17 mile (27 km) path of destruction that was 1.3 miles (2.1 km) wide at its peak. It is estimated that 1,150 homes were destroyed and damages are estimated at $1.5 to 2 billion. Briarwood Elementary School and Plaza Towers Elementary School were destroyed by the tornado. Seven children perished at the Plaza Towers Elementary School.
