Okla. officials vow not to quit looking until everyone is found

(Continued)

MOORE, Okla. —

Cleveland County Commissioner Rod Cleveland said the county usually gets a set amount of money.

"What we opted was to pay for 75 percent," Cleveland said. "You have to pay for the saferoom first, then you get a reimbursement."

Norman also anticipated having federal funds to help 500 residents build shelters, but Norman Fire Chief Jim Fullingim announced in January those funds would become available in time for the 2013 storm season.

Bird said he is not sure how many, if any, Moore residents might have also been expecting help with storm shelters.

"We grieve with our fellow residents of Cleveland County," County Commissioner Darry Stacy said. "It’s been a rough few days for Cleveland County. As you know we started on Sunday (in Little Axe). Crews are out 24 hours and involved in every aspect of the recovery."

Cleveland said the Bella Foundation and the Moore Animal Shelter is set up to take displaced animals at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds.

"We’re going to be in this until the very end," Stacy said. "We’re a very resilient county."
