Synopsis: Oklahomans have long been known for their fatalism and grit, but even old-timers are troubled by the twisters devastating the state with increasing frequency. On May 20, 2013, the worst tornado on record landed a direct hit on the small town of Moore, destroying two schools while the children cowered inside. Oklahoma native Holly Bailey grew up dreaming of becoming a storm chaser. Instead she became Newsweek's youngest-ever White House correspondent. When Moore was hit, Bailey went back both as a journalist and a hometown girl, and spoke with the teachers who risked their lives, the weathermen more revered than rock stars, and many shell-shocked residents. This is the dramatic story of a town that must survive the elements -- or die.
About the Author: Holly Bailey is a correspondent for Yahoo News and was Newsweek?s White House correspondent. An Oklahoma City native, she now lives in Brooklyn, New York.
