A letter from Shelter Box regarding Moore, Oklahoma. As you know, a devastating two-mile wide tornado has torn through Oklahoma City suburbs with winds of up to 200 mph, destroying neighborhoods and schools.
 
The city of Moore is the worst hit. According to recent reports, 24 people have lost their lives, including nine children due to the collapse of multiple schools. Reports show debris everywhere, houses destroyed, upturned vehicles, street signs gone and power shortages. 
 
ShelterBox Response Team (SRT) members Wayne Robinson (US) and Jeff Deatherage (US) are en route to Moore, Okla. They are expected to arrive Tuesday night, and will then begin to carry out assessments of unmet needs in the area. In the following days, the team will be focusing on the most impacted areas to identify unmet shelter and non-food needs.  Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this catastrophe.
