Late in the afternoon of May 31st a tornado was born southwest of El Reno, Oklahoma. This tornado would go onto to become famous for two reasons. First it eventually grew to an incredible 2.6 miles in width making it the widest tornado ever recorded in the United States. This monster was on the ground for 16.2 miles. It is believed to have had winds in excess of 295 mph.
