KIMT NEWS 3 — They may be hundreds of miles away but some in our area are doing their best to help those affected by the EF5 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.

The Freeborn-Mower Chapter of the Red Cross has about half a dozen people on alert to go to Oklahoma if needed.

In the meantime, they are working on getting food, clothing and shelter with donations.

They said there could be a time when their help is called upon.

“The people that are closest to the area that was hit, those people will be activated first and then as those people are used and no longer available to go out any further then they’ll expand,” said Chris Avery, Emergency Services Coordinator for the chapter.
