Highlights from Monday, May 20, 2013
Week of May 20-24, 2013
The Monday afternoon storm carved a trail through the area as much as two miles wide and 17 miles long, officials said. Hardest hit was Moore, Oklahoma -- a suburban town of about 56,000 and the site of eerily similar twisters in 1999 and again four years later.
You may be asking the same question that we are: "How can I help!?" We are working on details now for our JOY FM family to reach out to the families in Oklahoma. Be listening for details soon, and please join us in praying that our friends in Oklahoma feel God's peace in a way that they never knew existed in the midst of their storm.
LISTEN John Roberts, Senior National Correspondent for Fox News Channel, was assigned by Fox News Channel to cover the story in Moore, Oklahoma. While on the ground in Moore, Oklahoma, he took time to call and talk with us.
LISTEN Stay tuned to The Morning Cruise and The JOY FM for details on how YOU can help US help Moore, Oklahoma.
