The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management reported that in the aftermath of the Oklahoma tornado, over 1500 homes were destroyed, causing an estimate of $2 billion in damages and loss of 24 lives and 212 injured people. Witnesses said that the tornado actually appeared as “a giant black wall of destruction”, instead of a regular tornado.
