MOORE, Okla.- Hundreds of victims from the May 20 Moore tornadoes are gathered Saturday to celebrate recovery.

The reunion was made possible by more than 200 band students from the Southmoore High School.

The show is titled "Forever Moore" and 4Warn Storm team's Mike Morgan is featured in the show.

The community is proud of the students that are helping to heal the pain.

For many Oklahomans, these images are branded into their memories.

"My little one he was in Plaza, we got him and then we walked over to get the big one," Brian Nayphe, a local business owner said.

His son is part of the Southmoore band. Today, he's here to support the show that's bring the community together.

"First couple of times I watched it, I choked up about it," Nayphe said.

"When you first hear the tornado siren go off it's like your heart stops," Christel Vantuyle, President of the Southmoore band parents association said.

About 40 band students lost their homes.

"We're all healing is a community because we can all relate to the show," Vantuyle said.

"That's what we do, we stick together," Nayphe says.
