Samaritan’s Purse is responding in Logan County, Ohio, and the Selma/Winchester area of Indiana, where hundreds of homes were destroyed during a severe weather outbreak on March 14. The storm, which spawned deadly EF3 tornadoes, carved a destructive path across seven states, destroying homes and businesses and killing at least three people.

Two U.S. Disaster Relief Units—tractor trailers packed with relief supplies and equipment—have now arrived at our base churches.

“I know these will be difficult days for countless families and my heart breaks for those who are grieving the deaths of their loved ones,” said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse. “Please join me in praying for them and for our Samaritan’s Purse teams who are responding in Jesus’ Name.”


Volunteer teams are out working in Jesus’ Name to help homeowners remove fallen trees and debris, as well as to tarp damaged roofs.

Please pray for homeowners and for the many affected communities that God would bring them comfort and peace in the midst of their loss.

U.S. Disaster Relief Samaritan's Purse mobilizes and equips thousands of disaster relief volunteers to provide emergency aid to U.S. victims of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In the aftermath of major storms, we often stay behind to rebuild houses for people with nowhere else to turn for help.
