Tornado Strikes Moore, OK – Again

May 21, 2013

The highest velocity winds ever recorded on the planet – 302 mph – struck Moore, OK in 1999. While today’s return visit from vicious winds may not have reached that potency, the devastation was heart-rending: the current death toll is 51, many of them children who sheltered in a location often recognized as among the safest – their school.


Two miles wide, the tornado tore through the town, leveling neighborhoods and strewing heartache and damage, death and destruction.


“Dark tourism” may be a trend – but is it right to visit a community or site because of the tragic event(s) that happened there?


What do you think?
