After a tornado ripped through Oklahoma earlier in the week, one local woman reflects on how this natural disaster has impacted her and how she and others are trying to help others affected by it.
Taylor Corum ,a Jackson Township native and Moore, Oklahoma resident says she's never seen devastation like this.
"It's just awful," she said. "I think it's cliche to say that it looks like a bomb went off, but there's literally insulation and two-by-fours laying around everywhere, that's all that's left."
Corum said she was with one family for four hours helping them find photos that weren't ruined by the storm. She said it was a heart wrenching moment because they had lost everything in a storm that 14 years earlier in May.
Corum says she no stranger to twisters as one damaged her grandparents’ home when she lived in Jackson Township in 2002.
"Their second floor was gone, their neighbor's house was gone, it was just crazy," she explained.
Corum was 15 when the tornado touched down in Jackson Township.
She said the Oklahoma tornado put things in perspective, saying while her grandparents lost the second floor of their house, Moore residents lost much more, including loved ones.
"It's unbelievable," she said.
The 25-year-old Corum, who works at the YMCA in nearby Edmond, Oklahoma says the outpouring of support in the wake of the twister has been overwhelming.
She said that before she went to work, she passed out donuts to those affected by the storm, hoping to put a smile on their face.
Corum, whose husband Matt is in the Air Force, says all families including military families can use all the help they can get.
"There's 350 families on base (Tinker Air Force Base) that don't have homes, so if people can help, they can do so anyway they can."
