Sussex County Woman Finds Relief Amid Oklahoma Devastation

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del.- It is being called one of the deadliest tornadoes this country has ever seen. For the people of Moore, Okla., their thoughts will now turn to rebuilding their homes and lives. Here on Delmarva, people are reaching out to help, while others are looking to reconnect with loved ones living in that tornado-ravaged town.

Sarah Mullin of Seaford met her good friend Brandy through the Dover Air Force Base before she moved to Oklahoma. Mullin said her thoughts immediately went to Brandy when she saw the destruction play out on TV.

"It's just scary," she said. "You don't know what's going to happen."

Mullin held her breath as her thoughts turned to Brandy, who was right in the path of the storm.

"She now works right outside of Moore," Mullin explained. "Kind of in between Oklahoma City and Moore. She was evacuated from her job and she barely made it home with all the weather and what not."

Mullin texted her Brandy around noon, but it wasn't until ten hours later that she heard the news she had been hoping for.

‘It was a relief," she said. "I've never been through a tornado. I have a brother in Georgia who tells me about them all the time and you know, not knowing what that would feel like, to be on that end of things, it's difficult."

But coupled with that relief, Mullin said she can't help but feel for all those who weren't so lucky.

"To know that there's so many children that are either without parents right now, or parents without children, or friends, no matter what the case is, it's devastating."
