WCIA-3 crew follows your donations to Oklahoma, Part 3

MOORE, OK -- It's been over a week since a tornado devastated Moore, Oklahoma, but before residents can rebuild, they have to first clean up.
MOORE, OK -- It's been over a week since a tornado devastated Moore, Oklahoma, but before residents can rebuild, they have to first clean up. WCIA-3's Jessica Shaw and photojournalist Alan Balch see the aftermath firsthand and all the damage left.

The crazy part is some neighborhoods have minimal damage. But, if you go across the street, the back of the medical center is completely torn apart.

Crews say they've been working around the clock. Their goal is to remove the mountains of debris as soon as possible.

Volunteers have played a huge part in that. Victims say they've seen volunteers from all around the country and all over the world show an incredible amount of support.

Severe weather slammed Oklahoma again Thursday. The National Weather Service reported a tornado was spotted about 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, but it quickly dissipated.

People from around Central Illinios donated food and supplies to tornado victims in Oklahoma. A Rantoul woman traveled hundreds of miles to deliver them personally.

Marcy Lawhead spent more than 10-hours on the road. She brought 1,100 pounds of pet food and supplies to a drop-off point.

Lawhead hopes to help families impacted by last week's tornado by helping their pets. Animals which survived don't have food or shelter.

That's where these donations come in. They were collected by the Kenney 4-H and DeWitt Riding clubs. They organized the trip in just three days.
