ENID, Okla. — NASA has published a satellite photo that shows the scar left behind by the tornado that hit Moore on May 20, 2013.

According to the National Weather Service, the tornado was on the ground for 39 minutes, leaving a trail of debris that was more than 17 miles long.

The storm was the deadliest since Joplin, Missouri, was hit by an EF5 in 2011.

Just more than a week later, another five tornadoes hit the Oklahoma City area, killing at least another 20 people.
