Okla. Grocers Association CEO: Worst Tornado Disaster In State History
Ron Edgmon, president and CEO of the Oklahoma Grocers Association, is telling The Shelby Report that the deadly storms that roared through the state Monday resulted in what he calls the worst tornado disaster in Oklahoma history. The F5 tornado that struck the city of Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City where Edgmon’s association is based, has—at this writing—claimed 24 lives, including nine children.
Three of those fatalities were at a 7-Eleven store, a member of the Oklahoma Grocers Association. The store, Edgmon says, was destroyed.
Additionally, “three of our supermarket members experienced power outages but had no property damage or casualties,” Edgmon says
“All of our members are coming together,” he adds, “to provide aid in whatever way needed to help our fellow Oklahomans.”
