Samaritan’s Purse Responds to Severe Storms

The spring of 2019 was a difficult one for thousands of U.S. families as severe weather systems tore through the country. Hundreds of tornadoes and widespread flooding left death and injury in their wake, as well as devastation to homes, schools, and businesses.

Samaritan’s Purse staff and volunteers completed disaster relief work in flooded parts of three different states. Our work also included responses after tornadoes in Missouri and Ohio.

We deployed to four total sites across Oklahoma (Muskogee and Sand Springs), Michigan (Wayne County), and North Carolina (Catawba County) following torrential rains that caused severe flooding. We assisted homeowners by removing water-damaged flooring and drywall, salvaging valuables, and clearing debris.

In both Jefferson City, Missouri, and Dayton, Ohio, we responded in the wake of tornadoes. We helped families recover belongings, tarp damaged roofs, and cut through downed trees.

We praise God that we were able to help hundreds of homeowners in Jesus' Name, and we saw dozens of people come to faith in Christ.

Please pray for the people recovering in the aftermath of these terrible storms.
