Oklahoma City Tornadoes – How You Can Help

As most of you know by now, a massive tornado struck an area outside of Oklahoma City yesterday afternoon. At least 24 people were killed, including 9 children who died at the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore. The tornado was estimated to be at least two miles wide at one point and was at least EF4 (166 to 200 mph).

Readers who live in the area, thoughts and prayers go out to you, and your friends and family. American Idol alum, Carrie Underwood, who hails from Oklahoma tweeted last night, “Growing up in tornado alley, you always know what could happen…it doesn’t change how devastating it is when something does happen. #pray. I’m thinking about and praying for my beautiful home state and the people in it tonight.”
