Hey Diabel, actually there's not a lot else you CAN do other than donate things to Red Cross, however you can make donations of food or clothing and mail it to the City of Fort Worth. If you want the phone number there to get a mailing address, I'd be more than happy to email that to you. You know, you never know how devastating something like this really is until it hits this close to home, or even hits you. I have lived through many storms like this one, yet I've never lost a home or a loved one due to weather like this and I cannot even begin to imagine how those people feel waking up this morning on a gym floor only to realize it wasn't some awful dream, it was real. They lost their homes and most of what they own. It's devastating and I wish I was in a position to go down and physically volunteer my time to help. So anything that you can give will be more than enough...even if it's just your thoughts and prayers.
