On the afternoon of May 20, 2013, an EF5 tornado, with peak winds estimated at 210 miles per hour (340 km/h), struck Moore, Oklahoma, and adjacent areas, killing 24 people and injuring 377 others. This was indeed a tragic situation.  Often in such tragedies, there are those who choose to serve others who were victims of the disaster.  In this case, Sean Satterlee and Proxy, a Belgian Malinois, were among the rescue workers.  Sean’s story is featured in the Kansas City Star.  See the story, which was published on May 21, 2013 at Searching through Oklahoma tornado rubble: ‘Find me babies’.
