Neighborhoods, trailer parks, schools, businesses and other structures in the area are gone.
Crews are setting us a search and rescue area in the Warren Theatre parking lot.
Officials are asking everyone to stay out of the Moore area and off the roads because they are having trouble getting in to help.
