Efforts continue to clean up and rebuild
communities devastated by tornadoes. Volunteers from across the country, including here in the Tri-state, are headed to the towns of Mayflower and Vilonia
Arkansas to offer help.
This marks the second tornado to strike the small town
Vilonia in three years. In April 2011, a similar storm destroyed homes and
businesses. Officials are calling this latest storm on Sunday much worse.
Early Monday morning volunteers from Matthew 25 Ministries
began the twelve-hour journey to the Natural State offering their time and
resources to families reeling from disaster.
"We will probably be there for at least 5-6 days. That
is normally how long we stay there. We're looking for our partners there so we
can empower them to take care of their communities," says CEO of Matthew 25
Ministries and leader of disaster response Tim Mettey.
They arrived Tuesday to find Mayflower and Vilonia, two
suburbs of the state's capital, in shambles. The National Weather Service is
estimating an EF 3 tornado took 15 lives in Faulkner, White and Pulaski
counties leaving neighborhoods flattened.
The American Red Cross in Cincinnati is also offering their
help sending four volunteers to Little Rock. The first to fly out Tuesday was
"We are just now ramping up so I really have no idea
what to expect once I get there," said Press.
Press will be offering technical support to volunteers in
the field hoping to help the recovery effort easier for families who've lost
"It's just a good feeling to know I could help out
giving somebody the help that they need to get through some of these
disasters," says Press.
After helping in Arkansas, Matthew 25 Ministries say they
are headed to Tupelo Mississippi to help those communities also recovering from
tornado damage. They say they will travel wherever they are needed.
