Gov. Mary Fallin says the federal government has approved her request to provide public assistance to 16 Oklahoma counties hit hard by recent severe weather and tornadoes.
Emergency crews searched the broken remnants of an Oklahoma City suburb Tuesday for survivors of a massive tornado that flattened homes and demolished an elementary school.
Spotlights bore down on massive piles of shredded cinder block, insulation and metal as crews worked through the night lifting bricks and parts of collapsed walls where a monstrous tornado barreled through the Oklahoma City suburbs, demolishing an elementary school and reducing homes to piles of splintered wood.
Oklahoma emergency officials are briefing Gov. Mary Fallin on the extent of the damage after a mile-wide tornado ripped through the Oklahoma City area.
