Operation Compassion Responds to West Virginia Flooding

By , June 27, 2016

10853760_G West Virginia was hit late last week with what is being called “a 1,000 year flood” after torrential rains dropped more than 10 inches of rain in several counties, the worst being in Greenbrier County where 17 people were killed and scores of homes and businesses were destroyed. In other locations, at least 8 people were killed bringing the total death toll to at least 25 with some people still reported as missing.

In response to this devastation, Operation Compassion and our long term partner, God’s Pit Crew have sent 7 semi-trucks loaded with disaster relief supplies including bottled water, food, blankets and cleaning supplies. Many of Operation Compassion’s partners are responding as well; Mercy Chefs is set up and serving hot meals in the White Sulpher Springs area.

Pastor Tim Teague of the Victory Hill Church in Carroll, OH is undertaking a city wide collection in the Columbus area for crucial disaster relief items needed by the flood survivors. Local television and radio stations and the newspaper have interviewed him to promote the collection.

Pastor J.B. Hurt, Lifeline Princeton Church of God in Princeton, WV is coordinating the relief efforts for Operation Compassion and the West Virginia Flood Relief.

There are many people in need today because of the destructive weather pattern across West Virginia. As more rain and severe thunderstorms remain in the current forecast, this could be just the beginning of a massive response to the flood survivors. Operation Compassion needs your financial help! A donation today could save a life tomorrow!
