QUAPAW, OK.--- Volunteers at one Quapaw church are looking at how best to help victims in the long term. The First Baptist Church is accepting donations of nonperishable goods. While hot meals are being provided throughout town right now, volunteers there say they need to be prepared for challenges down the road, when those services run out. The church is also dealing with damage sustained in the storm.

"It took the roof up in two or three different places. Lifted the roof up and sucked the ceiling tiles out and there's insulation and things on the floor," said Jim Baughman, First Baptist Church Trustee. 

Church members have been working with their insurance adjuster to determine the extent of structural damage to the building.
