Oklahoma Governor To Tour Tornado Ravaged Areas

Posted: Updated:

MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin will survey tornado-ravaged areas of central Oklahoma from a helicopter.

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says Fallin will board a Blackhawk helicopter Tuesday morning to fly over parts of Moore and other areas that were devastated by Monday's tornado.

At least two dozen people were killed in the deadly tornado.

Fallin also plans to join local and state officials at noon at the Moore City Hall for a media briefing on the tornadoes that hit the area.

State Superintendent of Schools Janet Barresi says she also plans to tour areas where schools were damaged or destroyed. Plaza Tower and Brairwood Elementary Schools in Moore were destroyed and Highland East Junior High School lost its gymnasium.
