MOORE — The cost of a massive tornado that battered an Oklahoma City suburb could be more than $2 billion, according to a preliminary estimate announced Wednesday by the Oklahoma Insurance Department.
Relatives of Megan Billingsley Futrell and her 3-month-old son, Case, grieved Tuesday outside a crumbled 7-Eleven in Moore. The two were killed Monday when a powerful tornado wiped out the store and an adjacent neighborhood.
Rescue teams are continuing to search tornado-hit areas of Moore and south Oklahoma City on Tuesday as tales of heroism and survival emerge. Early Tuesday, the state medical examiner reported 24 dead in Monday's tornado.
Most of the $500 million from the bond issue would pay for storm shelters in public schools.
Meteorologist David Andra said his colleagues never forget their focus is the safety of people, those they know and many they don't.
While many Moore businesses will be working to repair the brick-and-mortar part of the store, bringing customers back after the storm takes work, too.
