MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Emergency officials say nearly 4,000 homes and businesses in five counties were affected by last week’s deadly tornadoes.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency say they’ve compiled damage assessments from the storms that took place May 19 and May 20.

Preliminary aerial assessments show the storm affected 3,937 homes, businesses and other buildings in Cleveland, Lincoln, McClain, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties.

The agencies say that 1,248 buildings were destroyed and 452 sustained major damage.

The May 20 tornado killed 24 people in Moore. A day earlier, two people were killed when a tornado struck near Shawnee.
