KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tina and Stewart Hedger spent Monday afternoon calling on friends and family in Oklahoma to make sure they survived the massive tornado. They knew family is safe, but there was still one couple they hadn't heard from.

The Hedgers said Donald and Rebecca Frith live across the street from one of the elementary schools that was wiped out. They were told the Frith's home was also wiped out.

"It just made me start crying. It's so hard to see all of this horrific event take place," Tina said.

Tuesday morning the Hedgers told Local 8 News the Frith's were found at a church in Norman, Oklahoma. The Hedgers said their friends weren't seriously injured.
