Oklahoma City suburb tornado damage could total more than $2 billion
MOORE, Okla. (AP) — The cost of a massive tornado that battered an Oklahoma City suburb could be more than $2 billion, according to a preliminary estimate announced today by the Oklahoma Insurance Department.
Spokeswoman Calley Herth said the early tally is based on visual assessments of the extensive damage zone stretching more than 17 miles and the fact that the tornado was on the ground for 40 minutes.
She said the financial cost of Monday’s tornado in Moore could be greater than the $2 billion in damage from the 2011 tornado that killed 158 people in Joplin, Mo. Herth said that twister left a smaller trail of destruction.
