Help Comes to Oklahoma Tornado Victims through Social Media

Posted by SusanStokes on May 21, 2013

Helping pets and people in the aftermath of Oklahoma tornadoes...

Once again, I sat glued to the news on television and on the internet, hardly believing my eyes.  The total destruction of Moore, Oklahoma by a super tornado was something out of the Twilight Zone.  How can the same town get hit twice, with even more destruction the second time?  We turn now to helping those people and pets in the aftermath.  Social media once again plays a big part.

According to ABC News, there were 50 tornadoes within 24 hours ripping through the country with the highest level of devastation seen in Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, 2013. Concerned citizens have rallied through social media in channels such as the Pet Pardons Facebook page on May 20th to help spread the word for those in need.
