PHOENIX -- A pair of Valley Red Cross volunteers left Sky Harbor Wednesday morning for Oklahoma City to help the survivors of two of the most powerful tornadoes in history.

Jean Currey of Peoria, Ariz., and Eileen Goldberg of Gilbert, Ariz., will be in the Midwest for about two weeks. Currey said she expects to see a gamut of emotions.

"Some people lost everything they have and take it very well because their families are alive," she said. "Others take even the smallest loss very, very hard. We need to get them on the road to recovery."

Currey is well aware that Oklahoma could face more tornadoes while she's there.

"Oklahoma had powerful storms that shook everything last night and is expecting more storms tonight. It just keeps coming."

Both Currey and Goldberg were deployed to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
