The National Weather Service says the tornado that hit Moore, Okla., Monday was a top-of-the-scale EF-5 twister with winds of at least 200 mph.

The mammoth tornado destroyed countless homes, cleared lots down to bare red earth and claimed 24 lives.

Here is a quick list of some of the agencies that are providing aid and how you can help:

Help victims of the tornadoes in Oklahoma by donating $10 to the American Red Cross.

Text REDCROSS to 90999 or visit or donate by phone at 1-800-RED CROSS.
