MISSISSIPPI – Hurricane Ida struck the United States as a category four storm. Much of the gulf coast, stretching from Texas to Florida, has felt its impact. Millions have lost power and lives have been lost. Currently Ida, now a tropical storm, continues to make its way up through the United States. It brings life-threatening winds, rains, and flooding. However, Operation Blessing friends like you are reaching out to help Ida victims.
Residents of Louisiana and Mississippi felt Ida’s greatest impact. In response, the Operation Blessing Disaster Relief team has travelled to the gulf coast to survey the damage. Moving through Tupelo and Starkville, Mississippi, as well as Covington and Hammond, Louisiana, our team has witnessed dozens of downed power lines, trees obstructing traffic, and severe flooding.
On the Move to Help Ida Victims
We are meeting with local leaders, including at the staging sight in Laurel, Mississippi, to understand the most fervent need and to help Ida victims during this time. Please continue to pray for the victims, as well as the volunteers who are standing by, ready to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus.
