LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A team of volunteers led by a survivor of last year's Henryville, Ind. tornado is headed out to help Oklahoma tornado victims.

Jennifer McConahay and Jennifer Corkum created Indiana Cares after they saw TV reports about last week's devastating tornado that struck Moore, Okla. 

They helped lead relief efforts in Henryville after an EF-4 tornado destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses last year.  McConahay lost two homes and two cars.  They're hoping their experience lets them help survivors in Oklahoma who have lost everything.

This is the first relief trip for Indiana Cares, but McConahay and Corkum hope to deploy to other disasters, as well.
