Area resident learns family in Oklahoma found safe

An Oklahoma native who now lives in Greenbush, Minnesota, says her family members were displaced by the tornado, but have been found safe.

An Oklahoma native who now lives in Greenbush, Minnesota, says her family members were displaced by the tornado, but have been found safe.

Ann-Marie Creekmore ended a frantic search for her elderly aunt and uncle last night around 10. Creekmore says the Moore, Oklahoma house her relatives lived in was completely destroyed. Her aunt and uncle survived by taking shelter in the middle of the home. They are now taking refuge in a nearby church. Creekmore says she learned they were OK through social media.

Creekmore: "There is no way you could ever be prepared for anything this catastrophic. We pull together. Our faith is what binds us. Even though some of us haven't seen each other in years, we know we can depend on each other."

Creekmore says anyone looking to help should contact their local Red Cross.
