U.S. Tornadoes

The situation

On March 3, powerful tornadoes hit Alabama, Georgia and Florida, causing widespread destruction. At least 23 people have died in Lee County, Ala., and others are still unaccounted for. More than 1,000 homes have been reported damaged.

Our response:

Lutheran Disaster Response is working with those in the impacted states, including partnering with congregations in the Southeastern Synod to respond with immediate relief.

What you can do:

Please pray for the communities who were impacted by these destructive tornadoes. May God's healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need. Pray that God will deliver comfort to those who mourn the loss of loved ones and strength to those who are working diligently to care for affected communities.

Gifts to "U.S. tornadoes" will be used to assist those affected by tornadoes until the response is complete.
