Two people have been arrested for looting in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore. The town has been worst affected by one of the most destructive tornadoes in US history, killing 24 people.
According to the Moore Police Department, two men are in police custody after they were discovered going through the belongings of a home, when the owner returned.
Despite the crippling damage inflicted on the town of 41,000 people, many have remained positive and this incident is believed to be isolated. While extra security has been brought in to prevent and address any potential looting, many residents are simply focusing on piecing their lives together again.
Neighbours have opened their doors welcoming in those who are now without a home and thousands of relief workers have flown in from around the country, eager to help where they can.
