What to do now?
We encourage you to:

  1. Plan now for your response to any potential disaster impacts
  2. Build an emergency kit for you and your family
  3. Determine your evacuation plan
  4. Make copies of important papers/insurance policies and keep them in a secure place
  5. Be informed.  Listen and note daily weather updates (even during ‘Sunny” days)
  6. Make sure your DR “go box” has all your credentials and necessary items in one place


Pray for the survivors as they face these difficult days.  Pray for the First responders, utility responders, city, county, and state Emergency personnel as they engage and respond.


You can give below to support the Disaster Relief efforts and provide needed aid.


Credentialed Volunteers, please contact your local or regional leadership as to your availability and continue to earnestly pray for the survivors, and all those helping with recovery.

Thank you in advance for your desire to be right beside those who need help, hope and healing!
