Oklahoma Tornado Hygiene Kit Collection

And destruction hits again this time in Oklahoma. We had patrons send their hygiene kits directly to two relief outfits in Oklahoma so we are unable to account for exactly how many kits were influenced by Color My World!

The 2013 Moore tornado was an EF5 tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma, and adjacent areas on the afternoon of May 20, 2013; with peak winds estimated at 210 mph (340 km/h), killing 24 people (+1 indirect fatality) and injuring 377 others. The tornado was part of a larger weather system that had produced several other tornadoes across the Great Plains over the previous two days (including five that struck Central Oklahoma on May 19). The tornado touched down west of Newcastle at 2:56 p.m. CDT (19:56 UTC), staying on the ground for 39 minutes over a 17-mile (27 km) path, crossing through a heavily populated section of Moore. The tornado was 1.3 miles (2.1 km) wide at its peak. Despite the tornado following a roughly similar track to the even deadlier 1999 Bridge Creek–Moore tornado, which was similar in size and severity, very few homes and neither of the stricken schools had purpose-built storm shelters” –Wikipedia
