First responders in Moore, Okla., are still in search of remaining survivors after Monday's tornado.

While searching through the rubble that used to be businesses, schools and homes, one group of rescue crew members found an American flag.

A camera from KTVT then showed the rescuers raising the flag again as a symbol of hope and strength.

President Barack Obama has declared a major disaster and ordered federal aid to assist in all recovery efforts.

This natural disaster has taken the lives of more than a dozen people.
