President Barack Obama will travel to tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma on Sunday.
    
That's according to a White House official, who wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the trip ahead of the official announcement and requested anonymity.
    
A monstrous tornado barreled through the Oklahoma City suburb Tuesday afternoon, demolishing an elementary school and reducing homes to piles of rubble. State authorities say two infants were among the 24 people who perished in the twister.
    
The town of Moore is a community of 41,000 people located about 10 miles from Oklahoma City.
