LONE GROVE, Oklahoma - Volunteers continue to help Lone Grove residents clean up their memories and destroyed homes.

Volunteer Harold Newman said it's a small town and people just need to help others in their time of need.

Many of the storm victims said they are just living each day as it comes.

State Rep. Tom Cole toured Lone Grove Saturday and saw how residents were helping each other.

Governor Brad Henry is asking for White House help for the Oklahomans devastated by Tuesday's tornados.

He's hoping families who lost their homes or businesses will qualify for individual aid. The governor's request includes Carter, Logan and Oklahoma counties, but could be expanded.
