Vandalism and theft can happen at any time, but it can be especially devastating after a disaster like the tornado that hit Woodward on Sunday.

Jean Schwab's home on Robin Drive was one of those totally destroyed by the tornado and she and her family were victimized again overnight on Monday.

Rusty Hort, Jean's son, said vandals stole chain saws and power tools that belonged to his parents and had been put up next to the house.

"There's no telling what else, they got what they could carry out, I'm sure," he said. "We've talked to the police and they're doing the best they can.

"Everyone was just so great yesterday, then it just takes one bad person."

Bridges Out of Poverty Postponed

The workshop, "Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities" is being rescheduled.

The event was supposed to be held Thursday  but has been rescheduled due to the Sunday tornado. Shanna Alger, case manager with Northwest Domestic Crisis Services, said a new date date has not been set yet but it will probably be postponed for a month or 2.

"Because of everything (tornado disaster situation) that's going on right now, it's not a good time right now," she said.

Alger, who has previously attended the training workshop, said the workshop looks at what poverty is about, the different types of poverty, why people are in poverty and what can be done to get people out of poverty.
