You can find updated information here as well, I would assume they will be streaming as long as they have the live coverage and stories. News 9 has done an amazing job of keeping up with the updates as well as information on how you can help.

You will need to check and make sure these locations are still standing and what they are accepting as they might only be needing certain items.

Oklahoma City food banks.Find the locations, addresses, and phone numbers of Oklahoma City area food banks. A number of churches, charities, non-profits, and even government offices may be able to provide food to anyone who needs help.
While some centers may have income criteria or qualifications that need to be met, in general most facilities will help people of all backgrounds, income levels, and religions. Provided that a location has ample supplies, rarely will anyone be turned away. The food banks in Oklahoma realize that from time to time people are faced with a hardship or short term crisis, and individuals and families may need a little help, support, or food to make it through that period. So the centers do what they can to help the less fortunate. This may include government aid as well, such as SNAP food stamps. This helps people from needing to make the decision between buying food for their family or paying their rent or bills.

A massive tornado ripped through the middle of the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday, leveling hundreds of homes and buildings, including at least one elementary school with children still inside. At least 51 people have been killed, and dozens are still missing, many of them children. Authorities are asking people who would like to help to stay out of the area until further notice but welcome assistance for the people affected in other ways:
Text "redcross" to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
Family pets and animals are also severely impacted. Donate to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society or the Humane Society of the United States disaster relief funds. Remember there are family pets and livestock who are displaced and will need food, shelter and fresh water.
Do not drink the water until it has been cleared! That includes giving it to animals!
The Salvation Army and Oklahoma Disaster Relief are delivering food and disaster response to victims and are accepting financial help.
*updated* You can also visit the Prayers for Moore, Oklahoma Facebook page. They will have a TON of information, and also have a shelter list.
The AMERICAN RED CROSS has a site that is called Safe and Well. This site enables you to either list yourself as a survivor, or look for surviving family members.
