Iowa Red Cross Ready to Assist Oklahoma

American Red Cross crews in Iowa are on standby to help tornado victims in Oklahoma.

In a statement, Kara Kelly from the Iowa region of the American Red Cross said teams are assessing the situation in Oklahoma.

"Once that assessment is complete we'll know more about what the need is, and if volunteers and the emergency response vehicles from the Iowa Region are needed," Kelly said.

In Moore, Oklahoma more than 25 emergency response vehicles began assisting early Tuesday morning. They will have kitchen support trailers to bring food and supplies to those who were forced from their homes.      

 Anyone who wishes to make a donation to support the Red Cross can visit redcross.org, dial 1-800-REDCROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Buena Vista University is partnering with Larson Oil in Storm Lake, IA to collect bottled water to be brought down to Oklahoma City. Any one interested in donating bottled water or money bring the donations to the Geisinger Student Leadership Center located in the Siebens Forum at BVU by noon this Friday, May 24.
