Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is cancelling her visit to a small southeast Oklahoma town where a tornado left two people dead and destroyed homes, businesses and the local school.
Fallin spokesman Aaron Cooper says Fallin cancelled her planned visit to Tushka Friday afternoon because winds were too strong for a helicopter flight to the area about 120 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.
Cooper says the governor also has a 5 p.m. deadline Friday to act upon legislation sent to her desk.
Officials say two women were killed and about two dozen were injured after the tornado rumbled through the town about 8 p.m. Thursday.
Thousands of area residents remain without power and utility officials say some may be without electricity for up to six days.
