The path of the storm stretched across midtown and into east Tulsa when it hit around 1 a.m. on Aug. 6, 2017.
One of the biggest questions since the storm has been about the future of Remington Tower near 41st and I-44.
Several businesses like Panera bread, Starbucks, Chipotle and PetSmart have reopened since the tornado hit.
However, businesses like AT&T and What-A-Burger were demolished. TGIFriday's is still sitting in disrepair with no signs of when or if it will reopen.
