Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry toured the town of Picher on Sunday after an aerial tour by helicopter. Last night, he dispatched the Oklahoma National Guard and other aid to the area.
The governor toured the devastation and the damage is mind boggling. The tornado leveled several homes in a 20 block area of Picher. The governor consoled families who lost everything.
Fields are strewn with furniture and chunks of other debris. The governor talked about the six lives lost, and praised the efforts of emergency and rescue workers.
"It horrifies and is devastating to all of us. I have to say a big thank you to the emergency responders who came in to help," said Governor Brad Henry.
FEMA is working closely with Oklahoma Emergency Management workers to help those whose homes have been destroyed.
They'll have word on how families can apply for assistance later this week.
