Oklahoma City Tornado

Still perhaps a little raw to be teaching about this in detail, but some amazing images and stories coming out of the area affected by this huge storm. Thankfully, the original estimated casualty figures have been reduced....
The fact that at least one school was affected by the storm adds to the tragedy...

An authoritative BBC PAGE here has a range of resources, and currently a live feed of the news from the area....

Update

Also an astonishing set of before and after images of the suburb of Moore HERE via the Guardian.

Just exploring some GIS data for Tornadoes from the US Weather service / NOAA

There's also this HISTRO timeline.... showing '10 deadliest tornadoes'...
