Severe weather in the U.S. raised havoc over the past two weeks. Eleven states in the Midwest, mid-Atlantic, and the South reported damage from tornadoes, strong winds, large hail, and flooding. At least 32 people died, and dozens were injured.
Two major tornadoes hit Mississippi and Arkansas with a destructive path that affected some places in neighboring states. The east coast rarely experiences tornadoes, but several states suffered the wrath of Severe weather. Delaware reported its first tornado-related death in forty years, and New Jersey confirmed at least four tornadoes.
Our Rapid Response teams are actively investigating the needs and performing cleanup projects in various states. The teams deployed are from Tennessee, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Oklahoma, Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Georgia, Arkansas, and Illinois. Other organizations are also active, so at this point, it appears like most of the cleanup projects will only last for one or two weeks.
Thank you for your financial support and interest in helping our neighbors in the U.S. Please continue to pray that our teams could restore hope to devastated homeowners and others in need.
