Duluth East High School grad Mallory Moore is one of several former Northlanders now living in Oklahoma City, adjacent to the suburb of Moore that was hit by the devastating tornado this week. Moore and her Patrick husband live just north of the damaged area. She says this tornado was by far the worst of those she's experienced since moving there in 2004.

"It is hard to understand how devastating they can be when you don't see the tornadoes firsthand," she wrote to the News Tribune. "When I lived in Minnesota I was afraid of tornadoes, but it is a different fear when it is taking down everything in its path and is headed for you."

On Tuesday, Moore surveyed the damage and took the photo essay that appears here. She also helped those on the front lines of disaster relief -- filling her vehicle with a much-appreciated cargo of 63 pizzas.
