San Diego mobilizes to help tornado victims

[trib_ndn vid=24835377]SAN DIEGO – In no small numbers, San Diegans are stepping up to help victims of massive tornadoes in Oklahoma.

“We clothes blanket’s water,” said Diana Noshang.

Noschang and her friend Melanie Voss are collecting donations to send to the Midwest.

“Our military wives have came, collected and brought everything over,” said Voss.

From diapers, to blankets to food, donations cover Noschang’s drive-way.   It was an effort sparked by a simple Facebook post between Diana and Melanie.

“My best friend is from there,” said Noschang.  “There’s so many people in need.”

“It’s home.  To see my family and friends there, you just want to help,” said Voss.

Military wives are not alone.  Screen Shot 2013-05-21 at 5.24.32 PMAcross town at the headquarters of Urban Search and Rescue, members of California’s Task Force 8 are loading up.

“Sledgehammers, there’s equipment for cutting concrete, for breaking concrete,” said Chris Webber, Battalion Chief and Project Manager.
