Operation Boomer Sooner heads to OK with relief donations

CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

More relief will soon be on the way from Middle Tennessee to tornado victims in Oklahoma.

A donation drive called Operation Boomer Sooner wrapped up Friday evening in Clarksville.

The group collected goods and messages of encouragement and aimed to fill three large trucks from the hundreds of people who lost so much in the aftermath of two EF-5 tornadoes near Oklahoma City.

The name of the drive refers to the University of Oklahoma's fight song, Boomer Sooner.

The group planned to hit the road with the donations Saturday at midnight.
