Camilla - More help for tornado victims. On Tuesday, Lions Club International gave a $10,000 check to the Camilla Lions Club.

The money be spent on food, medicine and clothing vouchers for victims. President, Johnny Barrentine, "It's devastating because it's a small community and people live paycheck to paycheck...all the help we can give them is more than needed and appreciated."

The money was collected from more than $44,000 Lions Clubs worldwide. Starting Wednesday morning at nine, vouchers will be distributed from the old Big B Drug Store on Oakland Avenue in Camilla.

The Salvation Army has already started giving out grocery vouchers at the same location. Victims must register with GEMA at the Camilla Courthouse.
