TUSHKA, Oklahoma -- Time is running out for victims of the Tushka tornado to get help from FEMA.

It says those whose homes or businesses were damaged have until Monday to visit the Disaster Recovery Center.

But, the agency says anyone who still needs assistance will be helped by the Small Business Administration, which is opening a Disaster Loan Outreach Center in the Tushka Town Hall.

And later this month, two of Oklahoma's Own, Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton are holding a benefit concert to help the people of Tushka.

You can make a one time $10 donation by texting the word "OKGIVE" to 27722.
