In the aftermath of a natural disaster, social media can prove to be not only useful, but heartwarming.
At the time of this writing, over 11,500 people on Facebook joined a new group, “May 19 2013 OK TORNADO DOC & PICTURE RECOVERY,” . Due to an overwhelming response, the group created a more organized page (with the same name and content) dedicated to posting images of people’s priceless pictures and smaller items that were scattered throughout Oklahoma by the devastating tornado that hit Moore on Monday, May 20, 2013. People are also using the page to post donation, missing persons and family resources links, as well as loving words of encouragement. In times like this, helping people regain any semblance of their lives before the storm can make all the difference.
