(WMC-TV) - Unbelievable damage remains more than 24 hours after an EF-5 tornado tore through Moore, Oklahoma. Crews from across the country have arrived to help with search and rescue.

Two volunteers from the Red Cross left Memphis headquarters Tuesday afternoon. They arrived early in the evening and are ready to go wherever needed.

The Tennesee Task Force One was deployed Monday night, and they have been working since their arrival. They helped with search and rescue but did not find anyone.

As of Tuesday evening, many people are still without power. Many people are left without homes.

One concern officials are dealing with is a threat of looters. Authorities are guarding many of the streets, and making sure people are not stealing from victims who have already lost so much.
