Helping Thelma rebuild

VAN ZANDT COUNTY, TX (KLTV) – The East Texas woman who was hurt in last week's tornadoes is getting some help. Thelma Barker, 76, is still in the hospital after a tornado ripped through her Van Zandt County home. Her friends are trying to help her rebuild.

Last week, a tornado dismantled Barker's home while she was inside. Strong winds sent the home tumbling across the street.

After the storm, friends loaded up what could be saved, but it's not much.

Now a fund is set up to help Thelma rebuild what the storm tore to pieces.  Donations can be made at any American National Bank branch. Checks should  be made out directly to Thelma Barker.

Donations can also be mailed to:
