A powerful tornado devastated the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday (May 21), killing 24 people, including nine children, according to the Oklahoma medical examiner's office. At one point, as many as 91 were feared dead, but authorities have since scaled back the official death toll.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released images of various satellite and infrared satellite imagery showing the storm system as it hit the Oklahoma City area.
