Over the last few days, The Central Territory Emergency Disaster Service (EDS) units across the Midwest have been monitoring a volatile weather outbreak that is projected to take place Friday and extend into early Saturday morning. Tornadoes, damaging winds, hail, and flooding have the potential to impact communities located across several Salvation Army Divisions.
Our response teams are standing by to provide immediate support to first responders and survivors through food and water distribution, spiritual and emotional care, and long-term disaster recovery services.
