A team of 7 volunteers from the Eastern Oklahoma chapter of the Red Cross based in Tulsa have been in Moore since Tuesday helping out.

They've been working in shelters, delivering food, offering mental health services and they even have a team of nurses here.

“In Oklahoma, unfortunately, we have these devastating storms that come through. And with this one, it has been the worst that I have ever seen, personally, in my life,” said Cindy Agee with the Red Cross.

Agee has seen people in need after a disaster,but she says it's hard to imagine the scope of this catastrophe.

"Tremendous need. There are really no words to express the devastation that I’ve seen personally,” she said.

But she and her team of volunteers are doing all they can to fulfill those needs.

“We're trying to feed the folks, and maybe help with some supplies that they might need,” she said.

While she's been proud of how much Tulsans have stepped up to help out, she says there is going to continue to be a need for volunteers for weeks.

“Right now they could use some help just picking up the pieces, actually and that's literally," she said.

And while it's hard not to get overly emotional in the middle of all this, Agee is proud she's here to help.

“Since it's our fellow Oklahomans it means a lot. And we are privileged to be here to help," she said.

Agee and her team are set up at Southeast 4th Street and Rambling Oaks Drive in Moore.
