President Barack Obama will travel to Oklahoma City on Sunday "to see first-hand the response to the devastating tornadoes and severe weather" that ravaged the area, meet with families affected by the devastation, and thank emergency responders, the White House announced Friday.

On Tuesday, Obama will head to the Jersey Shore to assess the rebuilding and recovery efforts in the months since deadly Superstorm Sandy battered the coast.

"The president, joined by Governor Chris Christie, will visit with families and business owners who have shown such resilience in the face of the destructive storm, highlight the extensive rebuilding efforts to date, and underscore his administration’s ongoing commitment to stand with the impacted communities as the important work of recovery continues," the White House said.
