OKLAHOMA CITY, AL -- An Oklahoma City-based charity is sending nine tractor trailers loaded with supplies to help storm victims in Alabama 12 years and one day after an F-5 tornado hit the town.
Oklahoma City was hard hit by a similar outbreak of deadly tornadoes on May 3, 1999. The strongest tornado of the 74 that touched down that day hit the town and several suburbs as it cut a 38-mile track, according to NOAA. Those storms killed 46 people and injured 800 across Kansas and Oklahoma. They destroyed 8,000 homes and did nearly $1.5 billion in damage, according to the National Weather Service.
The caravan of Feed The Children trucks will depart Oklahoma City Wednesday morning to deliver aid to distribution centers in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. The trucks will be loaded with toiletries, diapers, baby food, ready-to-eat meals, work gloves, coolers and other supplies donated by companies across the country.
Alabama was the hardest hit after a series of twisters raked across seven states and killed 328 people in what was the nation's deadliest tornado outbreak since the Great Depression. More than two-thirds of those killed were in Alabama, and hundreds of factories, businesses and homes were destroyed.
The trucks are scheduled to arrive in Alabama Friday morning.
