Albany Tribune: B’nai B’rith International Opens Disaster Relief Fund To Aid Victims Of Oklahoma Tornado
B’nai B’rith International said Tuesday it has opened its Flood, Tornado and Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund in the wake of the devastating tornado that ripped through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday, killing at least 24, injuring many more and flattening much of the town.
The death toll is still expected to rise.
The funds raised will be used to help the victims of the tornado to rebuild their town, which has been described by many as now resembling a war zone.
The tornado moved across a 20-mile stretch with winds of at least 200 mph. In the path of the deadly storm were a hospital and an elementary school, both of which were destroyed. Rescue workers labored throughout the night searching for survivors amongst the wreckage...more.
