As many as 11 tornado's ripped through North Texas Wednesday night leaving many without homes.
Martha Riddlespurger with the Amarillo Red Cross says currently the Dallas Red Cross is performing damage assessments in these devastated areas.
"As soon as damage assessments are completed then we can go ahead and start helping people individually. We also have a shelter open for people who had homes destroyed or inexcesible, and are not able to get back to them, so they have a safe and dry place to stay, and something to eat, clothes to change into...that sort of thing."
Riddlespurger says if you would like to donate to the relief , the best way is with financial assistance, "and the reason for that would be that it is so expensive, even though like we need water, but to pack up cases of water and try and ship somewhere else like that. It's so much less expensive to have a financial donation and go and buy the water at the place that it's needed."
Local red cross volunteer, Raenell Gore will head for Granbury,TX at 7am Friday morning, to assist in mobile feeding and bulk distribution.

Your supposed to vacate the lane nearest to the blue and amber flashing lights. If you can't vacate safely form that lane you need to reduce your speed by 20 mph."
