Moore, Oklahoma: One Year Later

Tornado carved a 17-mile path and killed 24 people

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Ten-year-old Kai Heuangpraseuth will return to a new Plaza Towers Elementary in the fall, built on the same spot where seven of the boy's schoolmates died last year after a top-scale tornado reduced it to a pile of rubble.

Christopher Legg will not be there, but his mother says perhaps her son's death will hurt a little less if last May's tragedy in Moore helps lead to safer schools.

One year after the deadly tornado carved a 17-mile path through the heart of this Oklahoma City suburb and killed 24 people, deep scars remain — especially for families who lost loved ones and children traumatized after riding out the fearsome storm inside two elementary schools.
