Salvaging remains

, May 25, 2013

Ashley Plank and her father Jean look for items to salvage several days after her home had been destroyed by a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, on May 24. The tornado was the strongest in the US in nearly two years and cut a path of destruction 17 miles (27 km) long and 1.3 (2 km) miles wide. Storm experts said it was remarkable that only 24 people were killed, as tornadoes of this strength can blow away a well constructed brick or wood house. Reuters/Lucas Jackson
