Imelda Early Report
Tropical Storm Imelda unleashed massive amounts of rainfall in Southeast Texas, and has created deadly flooding. The flood-prone area of Beaumont that we served two years ago after Harvey has taken a hard hit, being drenched with over 50 inches of rain. Governor Greg Abbott has declared a state of disaster for 13 Texas counties.
Operation Blessing’s U.S. Disaster Relief Team has been monitoring the situation very closely.
Our advance team is on the way to Beaumont, TX. The team will continue communicating with local and state emergency officials, church partners, and members of the community as we prepare for the potential impacts of the storm. Our team looks forward to serving the people of Texas as needed.
We ask that you keep those who have been impacted by the storm in your thoughts and prayers.
Stay tuned for updates and potential volunteer opportunities as the waters recede. And please give a special gift victims of disasters like Tropical Storm Imelda today at ob.org/OBDisaster.
