A wind-damaged car rests near volunteers working to remove debris from a field near the Orr Family Farm in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, May 25, 2013. The tornado was the strongest in the United States in nearly two years and cut a path of destruction 17 miles (27 km) long and 1.3 (2 km) miles wide. Storm experts said it was remarkable that only 24 people were killed, as tornadoes of this strength can blow away a well constructed brick or wood house.
