RICHLAND, WA - A Richland man is driving more than 2,000 miles this weekend, to deliver supplies  to victims of Sunday's deadly tornadoes in Illinois.

Adam Miller has been collecting clothes, toiletries and other household goods all week with the help of social media. 

His mom lives in Gifford, Illinois where an EF-3 tornado hit, destroying several homes and injuring six people. She lost her home completely. 

"From her point of view, she sat from inside her basement watching her house lift up and turn above her and feeling things being ripped away from her as she tried to cover herself...to protect herself from the winds," said Miller.

Miller is planning to leave Saturday morning with what he hopes is a truck full of supplies. He says, more than anything, he needs baby food and winter clothes for men and women.
