My thoughts are with you folks who suffered through this natural disaster..and i wish there where more people interested in threads like this than the owner of the LA Clippers!!

Are there any charities set up to help the wounded? That i would like to know. Be strong as best you can people and from what
i read, you folks will..It doesn't help in the short term with such devastation, but know that others care from all parts of the US..

Be well!

There are some set up but I don't know the names at this time. I'm sure the Red Cross will need help, and they are already there. Tysons has a huge tractor-trailer set up to deliver prepared meals to disaster areas and they too are already there.

I chose the red cross to donate for the victims of this disaster as solicitation and such is not allowed on the forum, and i understand why. I'm no fat cat but every bit helps I'm sure..

The youngest victims were 7 and 9 and are both brothers. The parents of these two children worked at JB Hunt at one time. The father is in St. Vincent hospital and he was told yesterday. The mother is in UAMS and she was told today. Very Sad. Wal-mart is also there working with Red Cross.

Just now seeing this thread. What a terrible tragedy...my mommy and little brother, along with tons of friends, live all over central AR including a few in Vilonia, El Paso, Searcy, Rose Bud, etc...most are in Cabot, Jville or Sherwood but it was still a close shave after 2011...I am driving out there in 2 weeks to go help out a friend who is in construction and rebuilding people's houses. So heartbreaking. The place my dad and I used to take motorcycle rides to in Vilonia for ice cream is gone. We would go every Saturday. My first job when I was 16 was in El Paso....yikes. Just crazy. Hoping this season doesn't get any worse...but unfortunately it's only May 5......

I happen to have quite a knack for meteorology and am making it my career once I finish school, so I was on it and sending out tons of status update warnings to my friends/family in crl AR for several days beforehand. Was tracking hardcore all night. Here is a screenshot I took from my GRlevel3 right as the tornado was bearing down on Vtown...

Is there one in Stuttgart? How do you subscribe? Thanks.

The one we have is supported by KATV Channel 7. You may check on line to read about it. I filled out an application, on line, and used my credit card. I think it was about $7 per year and they send a reminder when it is due. And I think I wrote earlier that it is for your ZIP code only. When you check on line you can find out if they cover your ZIP.

You need a weather radio with SAME. NOAA Weather Radio
