S.T.O.R.M. Report: Hurricanes: A Look Back ... and Ahead

Janet Birkmann

S.T.O.R.M. Report Vol. 7 No. 10. I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work....You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples. Psalm 77:11-14 (ESV)

OPC Disaster Response has prepared a slideshow that takes a brief look back at Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and the OPC Hurricane Relief Ministry that began last September when the three storms struck within a few weeks of each other. The slideshow is also a tribute to the many volunteers who have served in Houston, Key West, Naples, and Puerto Rico - although there are far too many to include all of them!

Bracing for Hurricane Florence:

Hurricane Florence is headed towards the Presbytery of the Southeast.

Tim Hopper and Mike Cloy, serving as Regional Disaster Response Coordinators for Hurricane Florence, report they are in contact with the three OPC churches in New Bern and Wilmington (North Carolina), which are directly in the storm's path. While the churches will be keeping tabs on their members who will evacuate or shelter in place, Tim and Mike will be positioning assets to be deployed once Florence passes.

Please pray for their efforts, the safety of OPC church members and their families, and all who will bear the brunt of this dangerous storm.

Stay Tuned!

Stay tuned to OPC Disaster Response at Facebook for updates on Hurricane Florence!
