Once again, in a time of tragedy Twitter has become a sounding board for thoughts, condolences and ways to give back.
"Text REDCROSS to 90999 to help Oklahoma tornado victims," tweeted Parks & Recreation star Adam Scott, providing the most nationally accessible means of aiding those affected by a mile-wide tornado that ripped through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore this afternoon, killing at least 51 people.
"This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in," said homeboy Toby Keith in a statement. "I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much. But Moore is strong and we will persevere. God be with you all."
"Pray for everyone devastated by these storms, but especially for those families in Moore, OK right now...God, wrap your arms around this community," Trisha Yearwood posted on her Facebook page.
