Gov. Brad Henry to
Visit Storm-Ravaged Areas
Hundreds of people hunkered down in emergency shelters and thousands stuck it out in darkened homes after a winter storm that left 54 dead in nine states. Gov. Brad Henry on Wednesday planned to visit McAlester and other hard-hit areas of Oklahoma, where 92,000 homes and businesses remained without power. “I want to see the damage firsthand and make sure we are doing everything possible to help the people there,” Henry said.
