MOORE, Okla. (AP) — President Barack Obama is assuring victims of the devastating Oklahoma tornado that "you've got folks behind you" all over the country.

Obama joined federal and state officials at the site of the tornado damage Sunday to give an update on recovery efforts and to say he was touched by what he saw.

The president said, quote, "A picture's worth a thousand words." He said that some 1,200 homes have been completely damaged in the suburb of Moore, Okla., and that 12,000 have been affected.

He urged the American public to help the people of the ravaged community. He said that "our hearts go out to people" and said he wanted people in Oklahoma to know that "we're going to be with you all the way."
