MOORE, Okla. -Residents of Moore, Okla., who are returning to homes left in pieces by Monday's tornado are finding humor wherever they can.

An 83-year-old grandmother walked with her son and grandsons through what was left of her home. Part of the roof was in the front yard, and the siding from the front of the house was gone.

When a grandson found her keys, Colleen Arvin laughed and said, "Oh thank God. We can get in the house."

Some neighborhoods were left flattened by the twister that stretched some 1.3 miles wide at points.

It was the fourth tornado to hit Moore since 1998.

Monday's twister killed at least 24 people.
