President Obama will travel Sunday to tornado-ravaged Moore, Okla.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made the announcement Wednesday.
Carney said the president will talk with families and first responders.
A monstrous tornado barreled through the Oklahoma City suburb Monday 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.
