In the wake of the devastating tornado that tore through Moore, Oklahoma Monday afternoon, country stars, many of whom are from Oklahoma, are offering their thoughts and prayers. Toby Keith grew up in the town of Moore and was deeply affected by the storm.

“This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in,” he said. “I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much. But Moore is strong and we will persevere. God be with you all.”

Carrie Underwood, from Checotah, Oklahoma, sent her thoughts and prayers through Twitter. “I’m thinking about and praying for my beautiful home state and the people in it tonight,” she wrote.

Reba, born and raised in McAlester, Oklahoma, also took to Twitter to offer her support. “All my prayers go out to the folks in Oklahoma dealing with these tornados. Stay safe everyone!!!!” she tweeted.

Blake Shelton, a native Oklahoman, and wife Miranda Lambert who now calls Oklahoma home, sent well wishes through Twitter. “Just landed in LA and hearing about all the tornados in Oklahoma right now… Get somewhere safe!!!” Blake tweeted. “Pray. That’s all we can do. Pray for peace for Oklahoma,” Miranda wrote.

Trisha Yearwood, who also calls Oklahoma home, asked for prayers through Facebook. “#PrayForOklahoma. Pray for everyone devastated by these storms, but especially for those families in Moore, OK right now…God, wrap your arms around this community,” she wrote.

Ronnie Dunn, who lived in Tusla for many years in the early days of his career and was there yesterday, barely made it out of the state before the storms hit. “Watching CNN …not good! We got out just as it was hitting. Pray for the victims and DO what you can. My bunch is in Tulsa….going back and forth with them now,” he wrote on Facebook.
