Oklahomans are coming to the aid of those affected by the storms. Red Cross volunteers are taking a semi-trailer loaded with telephones, computers and other equipment.

The 53-foot trailer is a starting point for storm victims who are trying to find housing, food and other help. It is manned by volunteers like Cecil Kimberling. "A lot of it is just to comfort people. They have lost everything. A lot of them have lost everything that they have. And we're just there to help out any way that we can."

There are only two of these vehicles nationwide. Both are based here in Oklahoma. One in Tulsa, the other in Oklahoma City.
