Governor Mary Fallin joined Newcastle lawmakers and officials Friday to view storm damage and recovery efforts in the community following last month's storms.

Fallin took a driving tour of the community Friday afternoon. After viewing the area, the governor met with responders and local officials at the City Command Center.

A series of violent tornadoes raked parts of Oklahoma in May, killing dozens of people and injuring hundreds more. Two of last month's tornadoes were top-of-the-scale EF5s.

A storm on May 20 at Moore had 210 mph winds, and one at El Reno 11 days later had 295 mph winds.
