NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- A tornado relief concert organized by country performer Toby Keith has raised $2 million that will go to a tornado relief fund run by the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
Organizers said Tuesday that some donations from the July 6 concert are still being tallied. The money will be spent on local relief efforts.

Twenty-three people were killed in Moore and the spring storms caused an estimated $1 billion in damage. The May 20 tornado that struck Moore cut a 17-mile path of destruction and was classified as an EF5 tornado with winds that exceeded 200 mph.
The Norman Transcript reports the six-hour concert drew about 60,000 people to the University of Oklahoma's Memorial Stadium. Performers included Keith, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Dunn and Mel Tillis.
