In Your Corner: Hand up for tornado victims
MOORE, Okla. – Michael and Cheryl Hood are still reeling.
The couple is homeless after a tornado decimated their rental home.
They lost all their belongings and must rely on others for food, clothing and shelter.
They grieve for their neighbors who lost loved ones.
“I thought I was going to lose my mind but I don’t even have the words to say to them that I know how you feel; no, I don’t,” Cheryl said. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.”
Moving on from tragedy is never easy.
The Hoods recently received this hand up, a fifth-wheel trailer.
When we heard the family didn’t have the means to haul it from Moore to their new address in Del City, we got busy on the phones.
Camping World volunteered their services, free of charge.
Once we got the trailer secured, we were ready to roll.
Half an hour later we reached our final destination.
Camping World helped the hoods set up the fifth wheel.
They also threw in a new sewer hose and refills for the propane tanks.
The couple is counting their blessings.
The road to recovery for the Hoods and other tornado victims will be long and tedious.
