Obama: Oklahoma Will Get Everything It Needs

President Obama delivered a solemn message of condolence to the people of Oklahoma, assuring that the country will do all it can to help the continuing search for survivors of Monday's deadly tornadoes. “Our focus as a nation is on the urgent work of rescue and rebuilding that lies ahead,” he said from the White House. The president has been in touch with Gov. Mary Fallin to assure her that Oklahoma will get everything it needs. FEMA’s director is on his way to the state, where his first responders have been since Sunday. “We still don’t know the human and economic losses that may have occurred,” Obama said, pointing out that Oklahomans are better prepared for this type of storm than most.
