This came in via our Facebook page last night. Thank you, Keith, for sharing. And thanks to all for reading. Share the info, click the links, and send some love to those in need in Oklahoma.

Hi Henry,

There are a couple of us New England ex-pats (Maine, NH, Mass.) living in OKC. None of us were injured or lost property in the severe weather & tornados of the last few days, but a couple of us have coworkers that lost their homes. I feel as numb as I did after the Boston Marathon bombing.

(The photo is of a friend wearing her "Boston Strong" t-shirt while collecting donations for the storm victims).

In our 3 years out here, weíve had 2 EF-5s in the metro (the first of which was aiming down our road before veering north).

Anyway, thanks for being Bostonís most trusted newsman (Iím not being facetious here, despite my reputation).

Keith Lardie

Here are some donating options:

Oklahoma Regional Food Bank
(or you can text FOOD to 32333 to give $10)
Central Oklahoma Humane Society (They're helping take care of all the displaced and lost pets and also helping families feed their pets they've been reunited with.)
Recovers helps towns organize disaster recovery with mobile and web-based technology.
Thereís also this Facebook site with a whole collection of relief efforts and information.
