In Moore, a chaotic scene with ‘traffic as far as the eye can see’


The giant tornado that hit Oklahoma Monday was believed to be one-mile wide at its base, destroying large brick buildings and knocking over power poles. Afterward, there were miles of traffic stretching out of Moore, Okla. The Weather Channel’s Mike Bettes reports on the damage that he called “reminiscent of Joplin.”
