"We don’t have a landfill, so I don’t know what we’re going to do yet,” Elfert said. "We’ve got people working on it, but we’ve already had some brush fires, and the last thing our emergency responders need right now is to have to respond to other emergencies.”

Schools will be open today for the first time since Tuesday.

Oklahoma National Guardsmen provided security around the hardest-hit areas. Troops are expected to remain until Monday, when Gov. Brad Henry will re-evaluate the security situation, according to a news release.
