NAPLES, Fla.,- The Salvation Army is answering the call for help.
A lieutenant out of Collier County is being deployed to Moore Oklahoma.
And tonight, we've learned one of the area commanders for the Central Oklahoma region who lives in Moore will soon call Naples his home.
"There's a lot of people just wandering around, wandering around in a daze, just trying to figure out what was going on, where their possessions were, where their loved ones were," said Major Dans Proctor.
Major Proctor with the Salvation Army lives in Moore.
"It really is a tragic scene to see all of this, many neighborhoods just reduced to piles of wood and metal," Major Proctor explained.
The two mile wide twister did not destroy his family's home, but in just a few weeks, he'll make Naples his new home.
"I know there are things that affect Florida too, so this is just a little bit different up here; these tornadoes here are a little less predictable than hurricanes."
But for now, he is helping his neighbors in Moore.
"We are moving on to help all of our Oklahomans recover and get their lives back together," Major Proctor told WINK.
The call for help goes beyond those in neighboring cities and states.
More than a thousand miles away, Lt. Michael Missey in Naples, is answering that call of help.
"Sometimes it's not words, but it's actions that matter, just being there spending time with someone," said Lt. Michael Missey.
He'll be in Oklahoma to help victims with their spiritual and emotional needs.
"If they have a child or something, holding the child while they go and look for something, that is what we are ther for to spend time with the people and showing them the love of Christ," said Lt. Missey.
