MOORE, Okla. — Television footage shows flattened buildings and fires after a mile-wide tornado moved through the Oklahoma City area.

Video showed homes and buildings in Moore, Okla., were reduced to rubble, and vehicles littered roadways south and southwest of Oklahoma City.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.



The suburb of Moore, where Monday’s damage was concentrated, was hit hard by a tornado in 1999 that included the highest winds ever recorded near the earth’s surface.
