The Moore, Oklahoma community continues to recover from Monday's devastating tornado that killed 24 people, including 10 children.
Oklahoma City Mayor Glenn Lewis said today 12,000 to 13,000 homes were damaged or destroyed by tornado.
The Department of Emergency Management spokesman Jerry Lojka said Tuesday some 10,000 people were directly impacted by the tornado.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano visited the disaster area Wednesday, saying at press conference: "On behalf of President Obama and behalf of FEMA, we will be here to stay until this recovery is complete."
