Operation Blessing Deployed in Texas After Hurricane Beryl

Field Report by Operation Blessing

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (July 10, 2024) – Operation Blessing has deployed its U.S Disaster Relief team to the city of Brazoria, Texas, to help residents there recover from destruction caused by Hurricane Beryl

Team leaders from Operation Blessing had pre-staged disaster relief equipment in the Houston area. Once the storm passed and it was safe to begin traveling, the team conducted assessments of the surrounding areas and met with local partners to determine the greatest areas of need. In Brazoria, they encountered large trees down “on almost every street,” along with half the city currently without electricity.

First Steps Following Destruction Caused By Hurricane Beryl

The deployment includes a mobile kitchen capable of serving hundreds of hot meals daily, a construction trailer loaded with tools, a work order trailer, a skid steer for heavy debris removal, a shower trailer, a large electric generator, and various trucks loaded with food and emergency supplies.

Setting Up a Base of Operations for Hurricane Relief

Today, Operation Blessing is setting up a base of operations at First Baptist Church (101 San Bernard St), where they will conduct disaster relief efforts in the coming days. Once it is operational, local residents whose homes were damaged will be able to submit work order requests for free volunteer help. Operation Blessing will also be overseeing mass volunteer efforts to help remove debris, salvage personal belongings, as well as distribute to residents a number of disaster relief kits donated by The Home Depot Foundation. Each kit includes items such as garbage bags, paper towels, cleaners, hand sanitizer, scour pads, and gloves.
