Horror struck Oklahoma on Monday when a massive tornado took the lives of 24 people, including 9 children, and injured scores of others. Immediately following the unimaginable tragedy, television and radio host Glenn Beck announced that he would be accompanying a team from Mercury One and Operation Blessing to help out with relief efforts in Oklahoma (more about this initiative and ways to donate can be found here).

Beck put out an open call on Twitter earlier Monday evening for tractor trailers and drivers who would be willing to make the trek to Oklahoma to assist those in grave need. It didn’t take long before Beck had the vehicles, drivers, supplies and team-members that were needed to help those impacted by the disaster.

You can see some of the preparation photos below, as well as some of the first behind-the-scenes photos of Beck surveying the damage:

Beck and his team will arrive on the ground early Tuesday morning. Stay tuned to TheBlaze for continued updates and go here for more information about how you can help.
