In May 2013 a category EF5 tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma, and adjacent areas on the afternoon of May 20, 2013, with peak winds estimated at 210 mph, killing 24 people (plus one indirect death) and injuring 377 others. The tornado touched down 39 minutes over a 17-mile path, crossing through a heavily populated section of Moore. The tornado was 1.3 miles wide at its peak.
When I first came into Oklahoma City a month after to help out with the relief efforts I knew there would be plenty of stories to tell of victims, volunteers, residents and heroes. All of this is came into working along side missions and churches to interview, and produce short documentaries surrounding faith, hope and courage.
From May 2013 into the end of the year we gathered content and interviews. Below is what we have produced and will be updating with new videos once every few months. Feedback is welcome and we hope that through these it will give you strength for any storm you may be going through!
