Bravolebrities Tweet Support for Tornado Victims
"I can't seem to stop crying," RHOC's Gretchen Rossi shares.
Feeling helpless while watching images of the recent destruction in Joplin, Missouri and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, many Bravo stars used their Twitter accounts to reach out to the tornadoes' victims.
"Watchin [J]oplin coverage & heard another one is on the way to them. Please God give it a rest...I can't pray enough for them!" Patti Stanger tweeted. Monday's twister killed 122 people, and 1,500 more remain missing, making it the deadliest single tornado to hit this country since the National Weather Service began keeping records in 1950. The tornado was categorized as EF-5, the fiercest twister possible, with winds exceeding 200 mph.
Adding to the devastation, a string of tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma City the following evening, killing at least eight more. "Please everyone in Oklahoma -- stay safe!! My prayers are with you and everyone in Joplin xx," The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice posted on her account. "My prayers are with all of those in tornado areas," Tabatha Coffey added.
With many parts of the country still under a tornado watch, Gretchen Rossi told her followers, "All These natural disasters lately r really making me so depressed, and sad. I can't seem to stop crying. I don't know how to make it better 4 these people."
