When Their Homes Flooded, They Left to Help Others

Aired on 11/24/1993 | CC tv-pg
Hurricane Andrew destroyed Doug and Sally Moore's home when it made landfall in 1992. They were able to rebuild it thanks to the generous donations they received from people throughout the country. The next summer, when thousands of other people were flooded, the Moores sprung to action to return the favor. They picked themselves up, drove a caravan toward the Midwest and helped out in any way that they could. In this Oprah Show clip, Doug and Sally are joined by Tom Sickel, who spent four months in Iowa rebuilding 150 homes of flood victims.
