'I haven't been able to take a breath yet'

Help

As the Oklahoma City area digs out from Monday's deadly tornado, area shelters have received newly homeless survivors and volunteers.

In the nearby town of Norman, the Journey Church began accepting supplies as soon as the storm's devastation became apparent.

But as night set in, the initial shock began to wear off. Those in the shelter whose homes had been destroyed tried to come to grips with their loss.

The BBC's David Botti visited the shelter to talk to the storm's survivors.
