Amazing Photo Shows Bowling Pins Standing in Tornado-Flattened AlleyS

By far one of the most iconic photos to emerge from Monday's top-of-the-scale Tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, is this one shared by "extreme meterologist" Reed Timmer of a near-perfect ten-pin frame still standing amid the ruins of Moore's devastated bowling alley.

Some have suggested that the photo was staged, but others have noted that a uniform blast of mud is clearly visible on the left side of the pins, making it highly likely that this is simply a freak of nature.
