Four days after the tornado outbreak, people remain optimistic about the future.

Volunteers continued to support victims who lost everything after last Friday's tornadoes.

WYMT's Katie Roach visited one shelter and spoke with volunteers.
For the past several days we have shown you the devastation in West Liberty, the heart of Morgan County but today we decided to go into the hard hit areas of the county where they too are beginning to pick up the pieces.

All across Morgan County, volunteers are stepping up to help clean up, provide shelter and food, anything that will help the people here.

Donations are pouring into Morgan County Elementary School

Many people like James Kidd live in Morgan County and were affected by the tornado, but that has not stopped them from volunteering to help their neighbors in need.

At one Red Cross shelter, victims can find food, clothes and a place to stay.

People in Morgan County still need your donations and will continue to need them for the weeks and months to come.

It will take time for the people of Morgan County to recover but with the help of volunteers and a little determination they can rebuild.

The Red Cross is still accepting donations.

They say they are in need of work gloves, cleaning items as well food, clothes and baby items.

The shelter at the elementary school was moved so they can get ready for school to start next week.

You can now bring your donations to the Faith Assembly Church on Highway 519 where the new shelter is located.
