The mayor of the tornado-devastated town of Moore in Oklahoma has vowed to push for a new law on shelters, after a huge twister there killed at least 24.

Glenn Lewis says he will propose an ordinance requiring a reinforced shelter to be built in every new home.

Volunteers are now engaged in a recovery mission delivering supplies and helping people find accommodation.

The White House says that President, Barack Obama, will travel to Moore on Sunday.
