Noon news conference planned for Tuesday in wake of Moore tornado

Oklahoman Published: May 21, 2013

MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say searchers, utility crews and people cleaning up are to continue their duties the day after the Moore tornado.

Officials planned a noon news conference at the storm command center to provide updates on conditions. Emergency officials may have a new death toll at the briefing.

Roads that were closed because of tornadoes had reopened by late Monday night, though authorities discouraged travel near Moore because crews in the devastated area still have plenty of work to do.

The National Weather Service pegged the tornado preliminarily as an EF-4 on the enhanced Fujita scale, the second most-powerful category of twister.
