On Thursday, they helped a disabled veteran who had damage to his home.

The organization says they could be in Okmulgee through Monday helping people clean up.

"Some with trees on houses, some with trees in the yard, some small work, some big work, some where we're going to have to have a bucket truck to get to the top," said Lonnie Rowan with Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief.

The National Weather Service says the damage was caused by strong straight-line winds.
