Whitehall woman waits to hear from family in Oklahoma


WHITEHALL, NY. – It's been 24 hours since the deadly tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma and Jessica Crosier tells us she still hasn't heard from her grandparents.

"My anxiety level is very high right now, news all day long, just watching and listening. That people are being safe," Crosier said.

Shirla and Harold Pratt live in a modest home on SW 3rd Street in Moore, Oklahoma, just blocks away from the severely damaged Moore Medical Center which was directly in the path of the tornado.

"I haven't been able to speak to him yet to know if he's okay there's no cell towers that are working," Crosier said.

Crosier says she contacted the police, and the Red Cross, but wasn't able to find out about her grandparents; then she tried Facebook remembering her grandfather recently joined, and though he hadn't posted anything she noticed that her cousin Joani had.

"They're okay, backyard fence is gone, but they're okay," Joani's Facebook post read.

"If it wasn't for Facebook I would be a mess," Crosier said.
