Gov. Fallin urges Okla. to help communities recover from tornadoes

MOORE, Okla. – As Governor Mary Fallin walked through the decimated city of Moore Wednesday morning, it was obvious that cleanup crews are finally making a dent in all the mess.

Progress can be seen all across Moore. Neighborhoods that used to take hours to drive through are now clear and mountains of debris have been hauled away.

With the progress in Moore, Governor Fallin wants to make sure that Oklahomans remember all the victims.

But what can you do to help?

She urges all Oklahomans to follow her example, which included stopping at Hollie’s Flatiron Steakhouse in Moore to enjoy some good food.

“A great example.” Michael Balak said. “I think we need to encourage everyone to come back to Moore, support these businesses that are suffering.”

You don’t have to make huge donations or volunteer…just bring them your business.

“We want to do everything we can to support the communities throughout the state.” Governor Fallin said. “Not just Moore, but the many other communities that were affected by the storms. To tell them that we`re going to stand with them until they`re back on their feet and we`re all Oklahoma Strong still.”

It’s a seemingly little thing that can help in a huge way and get other communities on the fast track to recovery.

“Don’t forget to go back into these communities.” Governor Fallin said. “You can help them with their revenue by letting them know you`re willing to come back and do business in that community.”
