From listening to tornado reports and needs from each of the following counties via zoom call, the supply level is high at this point. If you want to send water, food, and clothes, wait a few weeks until they can go through what they have.

The immediate need at this time for most is help with debris removal, monetary donations and gift cards that can be used to assist with housing, generators (and fuel for generators), tarps, shovels, gloves, etc. An alphabetical list of counties and their needs follows.
