Maps of Moore Oklahoma Tornado

Pray for Moore, Oklahoma.  The Knights of Columbus and the American Red Cross are accepting donations for disaster relief.

The National Weather Service created the below map showing the range and strength of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.  For reference the Enhanced Fujita scale is EF 0 equals 65-85 miles per hour (104-137 kilometers per hour), EF 2 equals  111-135 mi/h (178-217 km/h), EF 4 equals 166-200 mi/h (267-322 km/h).

The BBC has a large scale map showing the path of the tornado inside the town of Moore.  Two of the three schools suffered pretty much direct hits.
