The first funeral for the Oklahoma tornado victims killed at Plaza Towers Elementary School is Thursday.  Nine year old Antonia Candelaria, one of seven children killed after the elementary school was destroyed by a tornado Monday, will be buried at a local church following a celebration of life.

According to an online obituary, Candelaria is described as ‘the sweetest little ladybug."

Moore Mayor Glenn Lewis says he'll propose an ordinance to require all new homes to have storm shelters.

President Barack Obama will visit Moore on Sunday.
