The Moore Tornado: Six months of healing
MOORE, Okla. — Wednesday it will be six months since the May 20th Moore tornado.
It was the kind of storm Oklahomans thought we’d never see again.
The EF-5 was born out of colliding air masses southwest of the Oklahoma City metro area.
The wedge dug through Moore, chewing up neighborhoods, schools, businesses and a hospital.
Victims were left scrambling to get out of the way.
For the unlucky thousands caught up in the path, many of them fought their way back from death.
Twenty-four people did not make it. Seven kids died in their elementary school.
Edith Morales is one of the victims who did survive.
“It amazes me that some of us made it out of there and some of us didn’t. i don’t understand this.”
Suzanne Haley had the most unusual and remarkable injury that day; the tornado drove the leg of a student desk through her calf.
Tonight at 10 p.m. on NewsChannel 4 we are checking back with Edy Morales and Suzanne Haley. Watch for a surprise reunion with one of the victims and the officer who pulled her out of a pile of rubble.
