TEXAS, USA — First responders and volunteers are working to receive and hand out donations to those most in need after multiple tornadoes recently ripped through parts of North Texas.

On Monday, several cities suffered heavy damage from an intense line of storms that moved through the area in the early evening hours. Those same storms continued into East Texas, causing damage, power outages and a threat of flash flooding.

A total of 10 confirmed tornadoes hit the area, according to the National Weather Service Office out of Fort Worth.

Some local departments and organizations have gone to social media the past two days, asking for help from those who can provide it.

The Jack County Office of Emergency Management is asking the public to donate cash to the Jacksboro National Bank. If you or you know someone who would like to donate, officials are asking you to use PO Box A Jacksboro, TX 76458 Account 09-136-7. You can also call an information line at 940-567-2259.

The county's emergency management team also set up a disaster assistance center and a donation center for the public to receive and give goods. 

Officials are asking people to go to the Jack County Fair Barn at 1072 TX-59 in Jacksboro if they need supplies or goods. If you have physical goods to donate, please send them to this barn.
