Tracing the path of the killer tornado

Monday's tornado cut a trail of destruction 17 miles long through Oklahoma. There is science behind a tornado with the size and power of the one that hit the city, but there rarely seems to be any logic to it. Many structures were blown away, while others were battered, but still standing.

CNN's Tom Foreman explains in the video above how and why this tornado destroyed some structures, and left others unscathed.
