Rebuilding Moore

-
(KFOR)  Moore, Oklahoma is now the first city in the country to approve new residential building codes that focus on creating structures that can withstand a tornado.

Organizers say they are taking proactive new steps to protect homeowners from Oklahoma's terrible twisters.

The goal is to help new homes, like this one, withstand winds up to 135 miles per hour.

The current standard is 90 miles per hour.

The new requirements for homeowners include roof sheathing, hurricane clips and wind resistant garage doors.
