Maj. Gen. Myles Deering on the recovery efforts: "This is where Oklahomans come together"

Tonight, "Piers Morgan Live" covered all angles of the devastating "mile wide" tornado that struck the town of Moore, Okla. earlier today and killed at least 51. Joining Piers Morgan live from Moore, Major General Myles Deering of the National Guard put things in perspective:

"In order to gain a perspective of what's been done here and what this tornado tore down, you have to have a perspective first of what it was," Deering began. "And I'm not sure that anybody who hadn't seen it before could really describe the devastation and it's just literal devastation."

Deering is staying positive as he looks ahead to the future:

"This is where Oklahomans come together." he said. "As Oklahomans, the heart is there. They'll recover from this and they'll move on and we'll write another chapter in our history."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Maj. Gen. Myles Deering explains the recovering effort.

    I was watching tonight for the segment with Bill Nye the Science Guy. He was supposed to come on after a break – but nothing. Where did that segment go?

    I am so glad that your program shared many personal experiences with those of us not near enough to provide aide. I, like many others, heard statements from officials that 'all residents have been accounted for'...but then was greatly moved by the account of the family with missing grandparents; & how their concerns are not being acknowledged. I pray that they are reunited!...please keep us informed..
    I know from personal experience the emotional turmoil a family goes through when a grandparent is missing. Many forms of search & rescue measures were utilized: rescue dogs; including a wonderful group that worked during and after rain and storm conditions; local veteran groups, school clubs, and a volunteer Human Heat Detection helicopter(that was used in the night hours)...do they have access to this form of rescue?

    This is the most important thing to remember when stuff like this happens. "This is where Oklahomans come together."
