A massive tornado that measured a mile-wide at certain points devastated Moore, Oklahoma Monday, destroying entire neighborhoods and leaving dozens dead in its wake. Video footage recorded by residents shows a powerfully moving twister tearing through the plains.

In response to the disaster Tuesday, President Obama said, “Our prayers are with the people of Oklahoma today. We will back up those prayers with deeds as long as it takes.”
