"The Oklahoma spirit is doing well, and people are still showing up,” he said.
County officials have been alerted that the Church of Latter-day Saints is bringing in a team of about 1,000 people, and other religious and corporate groups are also expected to show up in force, Davidson said.
Anyone who wants to volunteer to help neighbors affected by the EF-4 tornado that ripped through the Choctaw area, should show up at the District 2 barn at 7105 S Anderson, near the intersection of Interstate 240, Davidson said.
For those who want to help but aren’t able to do the physical labor, Davidson said donations of work gloves, masks, snacks, water and sports drinks will be gladly accepted.
"We’re gonna try to keep our volunteers fed and hydrated,” Davidson said.
Water bans lifted
Oklahoma City lifted its ban on outdoor watering Friday after power was restored to the Lake Draper Water Treatment Plant.
City officials said OG&E crews had to restore more than three miles of downed power lines to get the plant back online.
The city of Yukon also lifted its outdoor watering restrictions Friday, City Manager James Crosby said. The city sent out an alert Friday afternoon. Restrictions had been in place since Tuesday.
The city of Norman is not under a water ban, but city officials continue to ask residents to voluntarily conserve water and refrain from watering lawns throughout the weekend.
