A devastating two-mile wide tornado has torn
through Oklahoma City suburbs with winds of up to 200 mph, destroying
neighborhoods and schools.
Moore in the south of the city is the worst hit. According to recent reports, 51 people have lost their lives, including nine children due to the collapse of
multiple schools. Reports show debris everywhere, houses destroyed, upturned
vehicles, street signs gone and power shortages.
As the search and rescue phase continues, a ShelterBox Response Team is en
route to Oklahoma to begin our assessment and determine how we can best assist
vulnerable families. In the following days, the team will be focusing on the
most impacted areas to identify unmet shelter and non-food needs.
ShelterBox is also currently responding to other
disasters worldwide, including the Syrian refugee crisis, flooding in Uganda,
and earthquake in Pakistan.
Please make a donation today to support our relief efforts in Oklahoma and around the world.
Thank you for your support and making our response possible.
