Ever dreamed of living in Oklahoma (being an Okie)? If so Moore, Oklahoma wants you and will pay you to live there. However, there is a hitch.

For those not in the know, Moore is considered the tornado capital of the world. No place on earth has seen more twisters, especially violent destructive ones than this suburb of Oklahoma City. Since 1999, two EF5's, two EF4's, and four smaller storms have battered the city.

In fact, if you were to connect every tornado track that has affected Moore since weather records began in 1893, its length would be 249.3 miles long. The twisters produced 102 fatalities and 1044 injuries during that period.

So how does a city attract people back to areas where deadly tornadoes are considered frequent visitors? Well, the same way casinos lure gamblers back to the table: Free money.

Here's the 1999 tornado heading into Moore.

The 2013 twister every bit as deadly

This is what the city of Moore has come up with to attract people back to the area after the last EF5 storm in 2013....

The city of Moore is rolling out its new down payment assistance program which offers low-to moderate-income citizens financial assistance if they buy a home in a neighborhood impacted by the tornado. Here's a Moore sub-division devastated by the 1999 twister.
