On June 2, 2013, NASA’s Terra satellite observed an immense scar on the Oklahoma landscape left by a May 20, 2013, EF-5 tornado—the most severe rating on the enhanced Fujita scale. It was the deadliest U.S. tornado since an EF-5 killed 158 people in Joplin, Mo., in 2011.

The Newcastle-Moore tornado killed at least 24 people, injured 377 and affected nearly 33,000 in some way. Early estimates suggest that more then $2 billion in damage was done to public and private property, and at least 13,000 structures were destroyed or damaged.
