Medina-based Polaris Industries is donating 10 military-grade ATVs to Moore, Okla., to help with relief efforts following the devastation left by a EF-5 tornado earlier this week, Fox 9 reports.

The ATVs have specially equipped tires that are described as virtually indestructible. The feature is expected to help crews in the rough terrain created by the scattering of debris by the tornado.

The vehicles -- which cost about $25,000 each -- are going to Salvation Army, which is assisting in the relief efforts.

A tornado reported to be up to two-miles wide ripped through Moore, near Oklahoma City, Monday afternoon, flattening scores of buildings and killing 24 people -- including nine children.
