Struck Again

Massive piles of debris cover the ground in Moore. Mayor Glenn Lewis, who was also mayor during the 1999 storm, said the city immediately began recovery efforts.

"We've already started printing the street signs. It took 61 days to clean up after the 1999 tornado. We had a lot of help then. We've got a lot of help now," he said, according to The Associated Press.
