Obama speaks with Abbott, offers support after North Texas tornadoes

President Barack Obama called Gov. Greg Abbott Monday to offer his support after 11 people died and thousands of homes were destroyed as tornadoes swept through the Dallas area over the weekend.

“The President relayed heartfelt condolences on behalf of himself and the First Lady for those who lost their lives and for the many people who lost their homes in the tornadoes over the weekend,” said White House Press Press Secretary Eric Schultz in a statement.

Officials estimate that as many as 1,450 homes sustained substantial damage caused by nine tornadoes reported Saturday through North Texas.

In the statement, Schultz said Obama’s team had been closely monitoring the situation and will continue working with Texas officials to provide assistance.
