Obama Tours Moore Oklahoma Speaks On Tornado Damage And Plans Of Recovery

Obama Tours Moore Oklahoma Speaks On Tornado Damage And Plans Of Recovery
President Obama flew to tornado-stricken Oklahoma Sunday to offer both moral and monetary support to a community facing an enormous reconstruction challenge while still reeling from the loss of lives, property and neighborhoods.

 

The White House said Obama wanted a firsthand look at recovery from the monstrous EF-5 tornado that barreled through last Monday afternoon. The president was visiting with affected families and thanking first responders in the devastated town of Moore, about 10 miles from Oklahoma City.

 

Obama’s motorcade passed past grassy fields strewn with scattered debris. He saw devastation so awesome that it appeared as if garbage had literally rained from the sky. The president’s first stop was the demolished site of the Plaza Towers Elementary School, where seven students were killed when the tornado turned the one-story building into a heap of bricks, broken concrete and twisted metal.

 

Obama flew from Washington into Tinker Air Force Base and shook hands with personnel whose homes off base were lost or damaged. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, the first to greet the president as he got off the plane, said Sunday that her message to Obama is that she appreciates the visit, but the state also needs quick action from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help the ravaged town of 41,000 people.

 

 

 

 

 

Oklahoma tornado: Amateur footage captures devastating twister

 

Published on May 21, 2013

Terrifying amateur footage captures the monster tornado that ripped through Oklahoma City surburbs, leaving a trail of devastation. At least 91 people, including 20 children, are feared dead after the two-mile wide tornado tore through Moore, trapping victims beneath the rubble as one elementary school took a direct hit and another was destroyed.

This is the deadliest US tornado since one killed 161 people in Joplin, Missouri, two years ago. Report by Tom Ellis.

Obama Visits Moore, Oklahoma To Tour Tornado Damage

 

Reuters  |  Posted: 05/26/2013

MOORE, Okla., May 26 (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Moore, Oklahoma, on Sunday to tour the town that was hammered last week by a powerful tornado that killed 24 people and assure its residents that the federal government would provide long-term help.

 

His first stop was Plaza Towers Elementary School, where seven children died and several students and teachers were injured by the May 20 afternoon storm.

 

Piles of boards, brick and cinder blocks that used to be buildings and houses lined the side of the street. Rare items that survived the disaster – a television set, a pink baby carriage – stood in contrast to the wreckage.

 

Cars with their bodies dented and windows smashed lay under debris or twisted on their sides. Rising above the wasteland were at least three American flags that had been attached to the rubble, waving in the wind.

 

“The president’s message is that support is not winding down,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Air Force One. “As demonstrated by our efforts in Tuscaloosa, in Joplin, and those communities in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey that were affected by Sandy, we’ll be standing with the people of these resilient communities as they come back stronger than ever.”

 

Obama has been repeatedly called on in recent months to comfort shaken U.S. communities, from a visit last month to Boston in the wake of the marathon bombings, to Newtown, Connecticut, the site of a December mass school shooting.

 

Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Joplin, Missouri, were hard-hit by tornadoes two years ago.

 

The Moore tornado, which rated the most powerful on the five-step scale used to measure the destructive power of twisters, ripped a 17-mile (27-km) long corridor of destruction through the suburb of Oklahoma City, flattening entire blocks of homes, two schools and a hospital in some 50 minutes on May 20.

 

It was the most powerful of a spate of 76 twisters that touched down in 10 states from May 18 through 20, causing an estimated $2 billion to $5 billion in insured losses, according to disaster modeling company Eqecat.
