Oklahoma Town Continues Recovery From Tornado

Glenn Lewis has been mayor of Moore, Okla., for nearly 20 years and in that time has developed a touch for how to handle the recovery and rebuilding effort.

Lewis has seen his town twice hit by tornadoes so strong the chance they will happen are less than 2 percent. The most recent came May 20, when an EF5 tornado killed 24 people, seven of them children in a school obliterated by the storm.

He’s working with companies to remove debris, and with federal and state agencies to ensure aid flows in quickly.

He also tries to do the little things. He buys breakfast for troopers manning safety checkpoints and goes home to help his neighbors. He’s even working to help make sure the local movie theater gets back up and running to give residents a small escape.
