Flanked by local officials, Perry told a Friday afternoon news conference that all affected buildings in West, Texas, had been cleared with possibly the exception of one burned home.

Officials had said earlier that they had searched and cleared 150 buildings by Friday morning and planned to examine another 25 during the day.
