From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

We'll show you the devastation and heartbreak in Oklahoma. The tornado that ripped through the Oklahoma City suburbs tore apart neighborhoods and families. What's next this morning and how can you help? We'll be talking with people on the ground there, as well as some about to be. Crews from the Baton Rouge area will soon be leaving to help. From the Red Cross and Catholic Charities to groups like Feed the Children, there are already organizations helping that can use your help as well.
