WASHINGTON (AP) — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is assuring Oklahoma's governor that the Obama administration will provide all possible help to the state after a massive tornado tore through the Oklahoma City suburbs.

White House officials said Monday that Napolitano called Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin to tell her that President Barack Obama had directed federal emergency management officials and his administration to ensure no needs go unmet.

The tornado flattened entire neighborhoods in the southern suburb of Moore, leaving buildings on fire and landing a direct blow to an elementary school.
