Sarah Perkins, a long-time volunteer with The Greater Rochester Chapter of the American Red Cross says the sight in Oklahoma is "complete devastation and destruction."

Perkins is responsible for collecting data on the magnitude of the disaster. From the information gathered, the Red Cross can better determine how to respond to those in need. Perkins says she's telling each resident she meets, "We'll get through this together."
