While en route to California on Wednesday, President Obama will stop in Arkansas to observe rebuilding efforts in the wake of deadly tornadoes that hit late last month.

The president will "view the devastation from the recent tornadoes and severe storms and meet with the families affected by this disaster, as well as first responders and recovery workers," said the White House schedule.

Severe storms in the South and Midwest killed at least 35 people last month, including 15 in Arkansas.

Obama declared a major disaster area in Arkansas, and provided federal help. The Wednesday trip will be Obama's first visit to Arkansas as president.

Afterward, Obama heads on to California for a three-day trip that includes campaign fundraisers and an energy speech.
