A tornado hit the city of Moore, Oklahoma on Monday, leaving behind significant destruction.

The twister is one in a series of tornadoes that swept across the central United States Sunday and Monday, killing two in Shawnee, with more fatalities expected.

According to a tweet from the National Weather Service, the tornado will receive a preliminary rating of at least EF 4.

This is not the first time that Moore has been hit by a major tornado. In 1999, an F5 tornado killed 36 people and injured 295, according to Yahoo! News. The city was hit again in 2003. Below are previous photos of tornado devastation in the area.


The storm laid waste to scores of buildings in Moore, a community of 41,000 people about 10 miles south of the city. Block after block lay in ruins. Homes were crushed into piles of broken wood. Cars and trucks were left crumpled on the roadside.
