In the tornado-stricken neighborhoods of Moore many victims are still without power, food and water.

But one group is serving hope to those in the storm zone.

“I know for me it would be just such a tremendous thing to know, hey, I'm not alone and there's [sic] people that care.

On the tour of the damage, one saw more comfort than despair.

Kenny Kelly, Emergency Disaster Coordinator for the Salvation Army, offered tornado victims water and food but he also hoped his help fulfilled their emotional needs.

“That's what we are all about, is telling people how much we care and telling people we love them and God loves them and that together we can get you through this,” Kelly said.

For Bob and Carolyn Morehead, it's welcomed relief from the disaster in their front yard.

“It's just precious the Lord takes care of us even in these little morsels of food and stuff when you are so struggling to get this mess cleaned up,” Carolyn said.

The couple has lived here for more than 50 years. They lost their home to a tornado in May 2003... and came close to seeing history repeat itself this week.

The Morehead's camper was tossed around. But remarkably, they were okay and so was their house.

“It was so quick how they hit and they do all of this damage,” Carolyn said

The Moreheads said they are not focused on the misfortune, instead grateful for any blessing that comes their way.
