Caption: Tornado damage. House destroyed by a force 5 (F5) tornado or twister. The graffiti 'Toto went east' is a reference to the story The Wizard of Oz, in which a girl Dorothy and her dog Toto are swept away by a tornado to the land of Oz. A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air characterised by a funnel-shaped cloud. Winds in an F5 tornado travel at between 420 and 512 kilometres per hour causing massive devastation. Photographed in Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA, after a tornado passed through the area on 3rd May, 1999. An estimated 1500 homes were destroyed.
