Eighteen million dollars—that’s the figure that’s been donated to the Red Cross so far for the Oklahoma tornado disasters in Moore and Shawnee.

“In this disaster, I think because of the scope of it, certainly the number of families who were affected, the number of children whose lives were lost,” said Donita Quesnel with the Tulsa Red Cross Chapter, “people across the country have been moved by the stories coming out of Oklahoma.”

She says there are still about 30 volunteers from Tulsa on the ground in the disaster locations, bringing meals and other help to victims.
