Volunteers descend on Oaklawn to help tornado victims clean up the damage. Some are bringing in larger equipment to help remove debris
But some volunteers have run into frustration. it's something Sedgwick county officials say will take time to clear-up.
If you want to help, the county asks that you sign up by calling 211 or other agencies. Organizers say when folks show up unannounced, it can create some problems
More than a dozen workers from Wink Hartman's company showed up with bob cats and dump trailers to help a co-worker who lost her home.
"These people have a long road to haul and they need every little bit of help they can get," said Wink Hartman, Jr.
They also came to help other families in the Pinarie mobile home park. Their progress was slowed a bit by confusion as to what debris goes where.
"We're still at a point where we're not sure what to do," said Pinarie owner Trent Hardison. "We're kind of waiting on some assistance or direction from the county."
The county is trying to answer those questions and more, but county leaders admit it is a complicated task
"If you have been down there you know there is extensive tree damage part of the process that is slowing us down is some of that tree debris is in the way." said Sedgwick County Disaster Relief Supervisor DeAnn Konkle.
Plus the county needs waivers from every resident to allow volunteers on their private property. Its necessary steps in the process to make sure everyone is getting their needs met, which has led to some frustration.
"All disasters are very upsetting for the individuals involved," Konkle said.
Volunteers understand, and just want to do what they can to help.
"What goes around comes around and if we were in the same position I would hope that there would be people willing to lend a helping hand as well," said volunteer Ofelia Arredondo.
