Lieutenant Governor Lamb explains that there was an adequate warning system in place before the tornado struck and fair warning for potential tornadic activity from meteorologists. While those who have lost a loved one may not think so, Governor Lamb says, "The tornado sirens were activated. They went off very loudly, very audibly." But the focus is now on search and rescue efforts.
He puts the devastation in perspective, describing the tornado as a "two-mile-wide lawnmower blade going over a community...It's significant and the clean-up will be for some time."
