VILONIA, Ark. (AP) — President Barack Obama is telling residents of tornado-ravaged communities in Arkansas that their government will be with them until they rebuild.

Obama stopped in the state on Wednesday to survey damage from severe storms that tore through Arkansas on April 27. Fifteen people were killed and hundreds of homes were destroyed.

He walked through a devastated neighborhood in Vilonia, a small city about 30 miles north of Little Rock.

Obama says a lot of repair and rebuilding remains to be done, but that he came to remind residents they won't be doing the work alone.

Obama says when something like this happens to a wonderful place like Vilonia, "it happens to all of us."
