FEMA Chief: Feds won't go 'when the cameras leave'

WASHINGTON (AP) _ The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency says U.S. officials are ``going neighborhood to neighborhood'' to make sure Oklahoma gets the help it needs.

FEMA's Craig Fugate promises in an interview that officials won't desert Oklahoma, saying ``We don't leave here when the cameras leave. We stay here and get the job done.'' Fugate tells CNN that the agency has enough money to assist the people of Moore, Okla., who were caught in the path of destruction as the nearly 1.3-mile-wide twister struck Monday afternoon. He says officials will work aggressively to help people find temporary housing and says FEMA is working with other officials to get services restored.

The emergency management director arrived in the state Tuesday, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is due there Wednesday.
