UMCOR has been in contact with conference Disaster Response personnel in hard-hit areas, including Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and received initial early assessments of the damages caused by the severe weather that struck 12 states.
We are posting updates to the website (www.umcor.org) and to the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/UMCOR) on a regular basis. UMCOR's Assistant General Secretary for US disaster repsonse Tom Hazelwood is also reporting from the field on Twitter (@TomUMCOR).
UMCOR requests prayers for all who have been affected by these tornadoes and storms. Donations to US Disaster Response, UMCOR Advance #901670 will be used for the response. There is also an allowance for a sub-designation to Tornadoes 2012 (it is a drop down on the giving page), http://secure.gbgm-umc.org/donations/umcor/donate.cfm?code=901670&id=3018992.
