Tornado Relief Housing Help

I don't like asking for help. Really, i don't. I moved away from my parents house and to a new state a few years ago and my roommates and I have been very self sustaining. 

However, last night at around 12:30 AM our townhouse development was hit directly with an E3-E4 Tornado. My car was destroyed, as were two of my other roommates cars, our townhouse is no longer safe to live in and there were multiple gas leaks in the area as well, and we were prompted to leave because of possible impending explosions. Right now, i am writing this from a hotel room and asking for any financial help for my roommates and I. By the grace of god, myself, my 3 roommates, and our 2 dogs all made it out unharmed but our property is ruined and we are essentially homeless. 

Any money that anyone can spare will go toward allowing us to house hunt for a new place, help with damages, and help us to continue paying for food and shelter as we need to stay in pet friendly shelters/hotels. Tornados are no joke, i am shook and humbled by mother nature.
