More than 1,000 volunteers flock to Moore to help with tornado relief

MOORE, Okla. - More than 1,000 volunteers arrived in Moore, Okla., as part of an organized cleanup effort less than two days after a massive tornado devastated the town.

The city sought participation on its Facebook page and website and was only expecting about 100 people.

Organizers said they were overwhelmed to see the mass that showed up early Wednesday morning.

Volunteers gathered at the Moore Community Center then marched in what seemed like an endless parade to the Moore Cemetery.

Some drove from hours away to help rake up debris and pick up trash.

Volunteers said watching so many people come together for a common positive cause was inspiring.
