FEMA, state teams to tour snow-damaged areas

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Damage assessment teams from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency and the state Department of Emergency Management are to be in the Oklahoma Panhandle.

The teams are to be in Guymon starting Monday to survey damage in Texas County after a snow storm that began March 27.

State Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Michelann Ooten says the assessment teams will tour nearly a dozen counties in the Panhandle and northwestern Oklahoma during the next four days.

Up to two feet of snow fell in parts of the region leading to roof collapses - including that of a nursing home and a high school gymnasium.

Emergency officials say the snow also stranded some people in
their cars - some for up to eight hours.
