Police are reopening roads in Moore, about 40 hours after an EF-5 tornado tore through the area, killing 24 people and flattening houses, schools and businesses.

Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with the Moore Police Department said much of the debris has been cleared from major streets. Homeowners and residents will now be allowed into many affected neighborhoods west of S. Western, but they must present identification proving they live in the area.

Homeowners and residents will also be allowed to bring in trucks and trailers.

Sgt. Lewis says crews are still in the area trying to clean up roads so that businesses can reopen.
