The tornado death count as of this morning is 51 and that includes at least two dozen children killed in an elementary school. The count is sure to rise in the coming days.
As always, we wonder how to help.
Locally, Operation Blessing is getting involved:
A team is already on the ground in Texas helping victims of other tornadoes and they were working out of Oklahoma City.
Tuesday morning, Bill Horan, president of Va. Beach-based Operation Blessing, boarded a plane to join the team to do whatever is needed
"Operation Blessing is really good at managing volunteers," Horan said. "We can coordinate them and focus their unfocused energy."
If you want to help out, cash is the best donation you can make. Horan says they can easily use it wherever the need is greatest.
Lastly, we can pray for God's comfort and mercy and His healing presence for all impacted by the storm.
