Operation Compassion Responds to Tornado Outbreak

By , March 6, 2012

A second round of tornadoes in forty-eight hours raced across the country Friday leaving death and destruction in its wake. The line of severe weather stretched from Alabama to Indiana and finally cleared after dark. While the exact number of tornadoes is currently being tabulated by the National Weather Service, Operation Compassion has been responding to numerous calls for help and assistance.

As of today, Operation Compassion has set up 8 disaster relief sites in 5 states, removing and cleaning debris, feeding hot meals and distributing products. Currently, there are 8 semi-trucks in route to these disaster sites filled with relief goods. Operation Compassion has trucks and crews stretched out from Branson, MO to Cleveland, TN.

In addition, Operation Compassion’s disaster relief network of partners has also swung into action. God’s Pit Crew, Mercy Chefs, Feed the Children and others are doing their part in the relief and recovery of many communities that were hard hit on Friday.

The response by Operation Compassion and their disaster relief network will help countless families deal with the initial shock of the tornadoes and help them find hope to rebuild in the midst of chaos. If you would want to help your neighbors in Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Tennessee.

David Lorency, President
