      Kern County's hearts and minds rest with Oklahoma tornado victims

      BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) The path of destruction created by tornadoes moving through Oklahoma was tragic for many in Kern county. For a select few, such as Andrew Rickels, the images really hit home.

      "Its really devastating, there is no other way to put it," said Rickels, a Bakersfield native who relocated to Norman, Okla., a couple years ago to study meteorology at the University of Oklahoma.

      The rescue, recovery and cleanup efforts are also moving full-steam ahead, thanks in some small part to helping hands from Kern County.
