Home debris removed - Photo Gallery 1/17

Professional debris removal continues in Moore and south Oklahoma City on Thursday, June 20, 2013. Crews work near SW 14 and Penn Lane in a neighborhood east of Santa Fe in Moore. Debris and rubble from hundreds of homes damaged and destroyed in the EF 5 tornado on May 20 are in the process of being removed one lot at a time. The City of Moore has contracted with Silver Star Construction Co. to pay $80.78 a ton for tornado debris cleanup -- a rate two to three times as high as the $25.70 to $33.95 a ton that Oklahoma City is paying two other contractors to remove debris from the very same storm.
