Volunteers assist tornado recovery: The director of disaster response field operations at Habitat for Humanity Mario Fores

Dozens of homes in the affected area were built with the help of habitat for humanity. Many of them are now damaged beyond repair. Mario Flores is the director of Disaster Response Field Operations for the organization, and he's been on the ground in Northern Texas where 16 tornadoes hit Wednesday night.

Mario Flores is on 'Starting Point' talking with John Berman and Christine Romans about the efforts the organizations is taking to assist victims in the community in the clean-up and rebuilding process.
