A fire burns in the Tower Plaza Addition in Moore, Okla., following a tornado Monday, May 20, 2013. A tornado as much as a mile (1.6 kilometers) wide with winds up to 200 mph (320 kph) roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs Monday, flattening entire neighborhoods, setting buildings on fire and landing a direct blow on an elementary school.

While reliving the moment a tornado ripped through her neighborhood in Moore, Oklahoma, Barbara Garcia made a heartwarming discovery—her dog, alive, buried in the rubble. The elderly woman wept with joy as she reached down to free her dog from the wreckage of her home, which was leveled by the F4 tornado that ripped through her town Monday night. “God answered not one of my prayers, but both,” Garcia said tearfully. At least 91 are feared dead as rescuers continue the search for survivors.
