Oklahoma Tornado Twister Town

This combination of Associated Press file photos shows left, a neighborhood in Moore, Okla., on Tuesday, May 4, 1999, after a tornado flattened many houses and buildings in central Oklahoma, and right, flattened houses in Moore on Tuesday, May 21, 2013. This week's twister killed 24 people, obliterated entire city blocks and caused damage that's expected to top $2 billion. Four tornadoes have hit the town since 1998, including one in 1999 that everyone just calls the "May 3 tornado," which had 300 mph winds and killed more than 40 people. (AP Photo/J.
