“I’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. “All of the four buildings on my 40 acres are gone”.

Kelly came to the Carney Senior Center where the American Red Cross has set up a distribution center for residents impacted by the tornado. Along with her mother-in-law, Janet Young, they were able to get some gloves and personal hygiene items. Kelly is just one of the thousands of Oklahoman being helped by the Red Cross in Carney, Wellston, Luther, Shawnee, Bethel Acres, Little Axe and Moore.

“Everywhere you look, they’re there,” she said. “They’ve given us food and water. The Red Cross took care of us. I can’t thank them enough.”

Both Kelly and Janet said when they get things rebuilt, they’re going to help their local Red Cross.

“They’ve gone above and beyond and have thought of things I never even knew I would need,” she said.
