                  Obama to visit tornado-hit area in Oklahoma
 
U.S. President Barack Obama will travel to the tornado-devastated area in the state of Oklahoma on Sunday and visit victims and communities there, the White House said on Wednesday.
美国白宫发言人卡尼22日在例行记者会上说,美国总统奥巴马定于26日前往俄克拉何马州首府俄克拉何马城附近的龙卷风受灾区,视察灾情以及救援工作的开展情况,并与当地受灾家庭和救援工作者会面。
 
White House spokesman Jay Carney said at a daily briefing that the president will travel to Oklahoma City, the state capital of Oklahoma, to "see firsthand the response to the devastating tornadoes and severe weather" that have impacted the area last Sunday and this Monday.
奥巴马21日在白宫发表讲话说,俄克拉何马风灾是美国历史上破坏性最大的龙卷风灾害之一。他已签署文件宣布启动联邦救援程序。
 
Carney said that Obama planned to visit the affected families and first responders."The president has directed his administration to provide all available resources to support the response led by the governor and her team," added Carney.
卡尼说,奥巴马已指示联邦政府为俄克拉何马州政府提供一切可能的资源,支持当地的救援工作。
 
State officials confirmed on Tuesday that 24 people were killed and over 200 injured when a
massive tornado blasted Moore, the southern suburbs of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area on Monday afternoon. The deadly twister came after tornadoes and powerful storms that had ripped through Oklahoma and the U.S. Midwest on Sunday and earlier on Monday.
自19日起,俄克拉何马州等美国中西部地区遭遇龙卷风和强风暴天气。一场巨型龙卷风更是在20日下午重创俄克拉何马城南部的穆尔市,造成重大人员伤亡,房屋损毁严重。俄克拉何马城官员21日证实,有24人在这场巨大风灾中遇难。
