A destructive tornado outbreak hit Alabama, Georgia, and the Florida panhandle on Sunday afternoon. The tornadoes tore houses to shreds, flattened trees, and killed at least 23 people. Our Rapid Response teams are responding in the following areas:
Lee County, Alabama:
One of several tornadoes in this area was rated an EF-4 and packed 170 mph winds. It left a track of destruction almost a mile wide and 24 miles long. The Alabama Rapid Response team is working to get into the area, but with the amount of casualties and people still missing, they have had difficulty with research.
The town of Cairo, Georgia, was hit with an EF-2 tornado with 102-mph winds. CAM’s Georgia Rapid Response team is starting to provide cleanup in this area. The team is also researching needs in other parts of Georgia.
Pray that God would open doors for our teams to meet needs and minister the love of Jesus in these devastated areas.
