Caption: This animation of imagery from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite shows the movement of storm systems in the south central United States on May 20, 2013. Warm, moist gulf air flowing across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri triggered tornadoes, with an F-4 tornado (winds between 166 and 200 mph) crossing Moore, Okla., on May 20 around 3 p.m. CDT.
