Oklahoma Tornado.

When ever i write about news, they are usually bad ones.
So, another natural disaster has happened in Oklahoma, US.
It has happened before in 1999 and then in 2003.
10 years later, which is this year, the same devastating storm occurs again and had killed at least 24 people, including 9 children and it was reported that more 230 people were injured. 
CNN news stated that the tornado's width spanned 1.3 miles which is the length of more than 22 football fields lined up end to end with winds exceeding 200 miles per hour that left a trail of destruction 17 miles long.  
The tornado has also been ranked as some of the strongest storms ever to strike the United States. 
According to the National Weather Service, the tornado struck at 2.45p.m. , only 5 minutes after the first warning went out.
