MOORE, Oklahoma -

Authorities have reopened streets and resumed mail delivery in part of Moore as the town continues to clean up after Monday’s deadly tornado.

At a news conference Friday, police said residents in the hardest-hit areas can go back into their neighborhoods without having to deal with police checkpoints. Some road closures may still occur as utility crews work to restore service.

As of Friday afternoon, about 5,000 Oklahoma Gas and Electric customers in Moore were still without power, according to the company’s website.

Moore's postmaster said 85% of mail delivered from the Moore station is being delivered, and that mail deliveries from the Santa Fe station are up to 95%.

The EF-5 tornado tore through the Oklahoma City suburb on Monday, killing 24 people and injuring more than 300.

Officials estimate the tornado did more than $2 billion in damage.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
