Tornado Update!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

My family is safe. But there are some many other that are not. Moore, Ok took a direct hit. That storm went just north of Us and was not on the ground then. It is so hard to put into word the devastation. They say it looks like a war zone and it does. The area hit Sunday about 3 + miles from Us lost 2 people. The last count I heard on the Moore area was 91. I am sure as they continue to search that will go higher! They did find 101 over night alive. It is just so difficult to see these people hurting. Oklahomans always come to gather to help each other and that is happening right now. Last night at one of our TV stations had 2+ miles of cars with people donating items. Our office manager's Mother-In-Law is trapped in Her home over there. It is hard to communicate with folks over there.
Please Prayer for these people and the rescue and search people. Thanks You for all Your thoughts and Prayers. I Love Y'all! (((((HUGS)))))

    My prayers are with you and the people of Moore. We have lived in Ok two different times, both in Enid. We were there when the tornado in 1999 hit. It was devastating! My heart aches for the residents there. So thankful you are alright.

    As happy as I am that you and your family are OK, I am so sad about the loss of life - especially those precious children. All of America weeps with OK. We'll all help where we can.
To a brighter day ---

    Glad to hear you and your family are okay.
My heart goes out to all people in that area.
We had a F3 hit here two years ago and we are still rebuilding.
Thanks for the update.

    It IS horrible but I am not sure they need people dropping off a bunch of stuff unless it's water. The Salvation Army, RedCross and other organizations like UMCOR and other church committees on relief need cash so the people can get the things they need in the sizes they need, etc. If you belong to a church look for that Relief group as normally 100% of your donation goes directly to the people who need it not to the employees of the organization.

    So glad to hear your family is ok. Know how frightening it can be hearing of one so close - we went through the same thing the day the Joplin tornado hit, although we were 35 miles away in Grove. We had one hit 7 miles away, but NOTHING like what Moore or Joplin went through. My heart, thoughts, & prayers for all of you in Oklahoma!
