Moore will be more

Dispatches from the May 20 tornado reveal the character of a community


Tim Farley, Louis Fowler, Peter Wright and Phil Bacharach
The afternoon of May 20, on a neighborhood street west of the Moore Medical Center, the Stephens family — Greg, Lynda and 19-year-old daughter Deanna — prepared to take shelter from the tornado. They headed into an underground storm shelter in their backyard, joined by their two dogs and two next-door neighbors.

Gazette staff
Cough, cough. Yay, cough. Oklahomans should be proud (note sarcasm) that the state now ranks only 39th nationally in terms of adult smoking. That’s an improvement from the No. 47 ranking Oklahoma held in 2011.
