OKLAHOMA CITY – One week after a tornado destroyed dozens of homes and businesses in southwest Oklahoma City and Moore, officials are releasing new information about the damage left behind.

On Monday, the City of Moore said 33 homes were destroyed and 27 homes suffered major damage from the storm in its city limits.

On Tuesday, Oklahoma City Emergency Management officials released its damage assessment from March 25.

Authorities say 89 homes, 20 business and one building in Oklahoma City had “affected damage.”

“Affected damage” means structures or homes suffered minimal damage and the residence is still habitable without repairs.

Also, seven homes, 43 mobile homes and six businesses suffered minor damage.

Minor damage exists when a home is damaged and uninhabitable, but may become habitable again with a few repairs.

Two businesses suffered major damage from Wednesday’s storm.

Amazingly, no structures in Oklahoma City were classified as destroyed.
