Tech giant Google is lending a hand to Oklahoma storm victims. 

The company posted an announcement on its Google + page saying it was committing $150,000 to relief efforts in Oklahoma. The company operates a data center in Mayes County.

"Oklahomans have proven their resilience time and time again and that the Oklahoma Standard will not be broken," said Andrew Silvestri, Google's Oklahoma Public Affairs Manager.

"While our hearts break for everyone who has been impacted by these storms, we take great comfort in the compassion and courage of the thousands of Oklahomans supporting their neighbors and who are committed to rebuilding their local communities."

The funds will come from Google.com and employee support.

Since May 5, 11 Oklahomans have lost their lives because of the storms.
