Tornado-ravaged Moore, Okla. to announce recovery grant after devastating storms

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State and federal officials are slated to announce a disaster recovery grant for the tornado-hit town of Moore.

The announcement is expected Friday morning at Moore City Hall.

Tammye H. Trevino, the regional administrator for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Southwest Region, will join leaders at the news conference. Gov. Mary Fallin, U.S. Rep. Tom Cole and local leaders are also expected at City Hall.

Following the announcement, the group will tour the area to view the recovery and rebuilding progress.

Moore was hit May 20 by a deadly tornado that ripped a 17-mile path of devastation through the suburbs of Oklahoma City. The top-of-the-scale EF5 tornado packed winds that exceeded 200 mph and destroyed scores of homes and businesses.
