Toby Keith was raised in Moore, Oklahoma, the town devastated by yesterday's tornado. He knows the town in which he went to high school will make it through this difficult time.

Keith says Moore "is strong and will persevere."

The city has taken to Toby's celebrity, as his name is on the Moore water tower.

Toby says he remembers riding his bicycle through the neighborhoods stricken by the tornado. Rescuers are still working to pull people from the rubble in that community which is southwest of Oklahoma City.

"Hometown got hit for the gazillionth time. Rise again Moore, Oklahoma," Keith tweeted Monday evening.
