The images of the devastation from the massive tornado that roared through an Oklahoma suburb Monday have resulted in an outpour of donations and support for those still suffering in the disaster's aftermath. Notable donations include a $1 million-pledge to Red Cross from OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant, and $500,000 in cash along with another $500,000 in in-kind support from Cox Enterprises, KTVU's parent corporation.
