Deadly tornados tore through several Oklahoma communities on May 19, 20 and 31, 2013. These are the stories of natural disaster and its aftermath, and of communities healing and recovering.

Reunited: 90 Tornado Displaced Pets

The Animal Resource Center has reunited at least 90 lost pets with their owners since a May 20 tornado hit Moore.

The center says it received its first lost dog about an hour after the storm and has processed more than 150 animals in the past three weeks. In addition to reuniting pets with their owners, the center is also offering to board pets if their owners are now living in places that don't allow animals.

The Norman Transcript reports (http://bit.ly/15Mowq0 ) donations are paying for pet food, treats, collars and food bowls — to the point that some can be shared with other shelters.

Some pets were injured in the storm, and veterinarians from around the country have traveled in to help them. Other animals are suffering from stress.
