In the wake of the devastating and deadly tornado that hit Moore, Okla., yesterday, citizens are using the power of social media to help and to locate missing loved ones.

NBC’s Matt Lauer took to Twitter to spread the word to help locate one missing man.

The Twitter account #OPOK Tornado is helping to provide information about aid as well.


People are using both #OPOK for information and #OKMissing to help reunite families, friends and loved ones, including pets (with the additional hashtag #OKPets).

Facebook, is also being used.

Media outlets are also helping to spread the word.

Helping to publicize the pleas as people search for the missing can make a difference.

Please help spread the word.

And some uplifting success stories:

You can make a difference.

We continue to pray for all the victims and their loved ones.
