Oklahoma strength still seen one year later

MOORE, Okla._In a remembrance ceremony in Moore Tuesday, many paused to remember the 24 lives lost in an EF5 tornado exactly one year ago.

Governor Mary Fallin along with city and other state officials gathered at what was also the ground breaking site for the city's new hospital where the old one once stood. She said despite its resurrection, along with new homes and other businesses being built daily, the state and its people still had a long road to recovery.

"It was one year ago today that a moment in time in Oklahoma's history that literally took our breath away to see the devastation across the City of Moore, across the state of Oklahoma, to witness the loss of life, the loss of property, the loss of memories of so many of our Oklahomans. And today it's important that we do remember, that we reflect, that we not forget that there are still Oklahomans that are recovering, that are healing, that are suffering today," said Governor Fallin.

At the ceremony Moore mayor, Glen Lewis, said there was no time line for healing.
