The town of Wayne is beginning to recover and many people want to lend a helping hand.
Friday's tornado in Wayne was not common for the month of October.
It was the widest October tornado to occur in the U.S. and only the sixth October EF-4 or greater to occur since 1950.
That didn't stop volunteers from wanting to help. If anything, it encouraged them. Shalle Wolff of the Red Cross said many have shown up to help with the efforts.
"The community response has been wonderful and almost overwhelming to a point. But there are a lot of people willing to step forward wanting to help and help their communities. Help their neighbors come through this and come out on the other side."
The Red Cross set up in the National Guard Armory in town on Saturday to offer shelter, food, and a place to rest for those who need it.
Sunday was their first day and they served over two hundred meals and signed up about two hundred volunteers. But communities near Wayne were also happy to help with their own resources.
Jeff Dinklage from Wisner called around on Friday to friends and had enough donated supplies Saturday morning to cook over 500 hamburgers for anyone who was hungry
"If the same thing happened to any one of us, there would be people helping us. I mean it's easy to do. And a couple phone calls and 15, 20 people showed up to help."
Jeff sees all the volunteers and says everyone's desire to help their neighbor is what makes the Midwest such a great place to live.
