Oklahomans are pulling together to handle the diaster in Webbers Falls.

Since the accident, two dozen agencies have been working together side by side in the recovery efforts.

Emergency management officials say the work has its good and bad moments. Michelann Ooten with the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management, " I know morale is high at this point because they have been able to bring up some of the victims. This is a tremendous ordeal that they are all having to live through down there. Seeing a lot of things most people should not ever have to see."

The Salvation Army has set up a relief station to help the workers and volunteers dealing with the disaster. Officials say it's important for crews to take a step back from the intensity of their task and try to relax.
