Severe Storms Strike Southern and Midwestern States

Bella DiFilippo*

Midwestern and southern states were hit hard by tornadoes, flooding, and severe storms this past weekend. Multiple deaths and injuries have been reported, as well as widespread power outages and structural damages. The United States has already seen a record number of severe storms in 2017, with more storms projected in the coming days. United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) U.S. Disaster Response unit shares your concern for all those impacted by storms and the survivors. UMCOR is currently engaging with partners in the affected states. To support UMCOR’s United States Disaster Response unit, please give to The Advance #901670. Please continue to keep those affected by these storms in your prayers.
