MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Residents of Joplin, Mo., are delivering supplies in Oklahoma for residents affected by last month's devastating tornado in Moore.

The Salvation Army says the group from Joplin will drop off their donations Monday morning in Oklahoma City. The Joplin residents gathered six pallets' worth of items, including water, diapers, baby wipes and other hygiene products.

In May 2011, an EF5 tornado struck Joplin, killing 158 people.

The EF5 storm that hit Moore on May 20 destroyed neighborhoods and killed 24 people.
