The death toll is unusually high for the spring storm season, said the Rev. Tom Hazelwood, who coordinates U.S. disaster response for the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
“The loss of life is going to be a more significant thing than the property damage,” he said. Still, he and other United Methodists are doing what they can to help people clear debris, find shelter and start to feel whole again.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief is one organization moving to respond quickly. They have already provided a grant for rebuilding, they have sent personnel to assess and help, and they will stay for the long haul.
