Oklahomans commit good deeds after tornado
OKLAHOMA CITY (WHDH) -- Tornado victims in Oklahoma are helping each other pick up the pieces of their newly broken lives after an EF5 category tornado ripped through their town Monday afternoon.
“[We’re] doing anything we can to make it easier for these people who have lost everything,” said a volunteer.
Gina Reese was struggling to clean up the debris around what used to be her house when she was surprised by more than a dozen National Guardsmen on patrol who told her not to worry, they would finish the job for her.
“It was just amazing. Neighbors helping neighbors,” said Reese.
Nearby, waitress Megan Correia served lunch to anyone who needed a hot meal.
“Being out here to help people who are less fortunate, especially at a time like this is where it matters most,” said Correia.
After losing nearly everything Monday afternoon, some Oklahomans are saying even the littlest things will make a big difference.
“People that lost everything, if they can get their pet back, it would just mean the world to them.”
