Salvation Army helps tornado victims

LAWTON, Okla._Monday, volunteers with the Salvation Army returned home from the town of Bridge Creek after much of the city was destroyed when a tornado touched down last Wednesday.

The workers hit the road the day after the storm. Over the next several days, they served more than 3,000 meals and ministered to those in need many of them still in shock and with nowhere to go.

"The damage was pretty significant, the trailer park and a couple homes near the elementary we served at, total homes destroyed. There was a church that does have some damage too, trees done power lines down, car wash taken out, and heavy damage out there,” Salvation Army volunteer William McClure said.

No one was killed in the May 6th tornado. However, 1500 homes were damaged, with 200 of those were devastated.
