HURRICANE HARVEY DISASTER RESPONSE

On August 25, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the coast of Texas as a category-4 storm. Unprecedented flooding, caused by 25 inches of rainfall, has cause widespread damage in and around the Houston, the fourth-most populous city in the U.S. About 100,000 families have experienced damage to their homes, and entire communities were under water.

 

Nazarene churches are responding to the needs around them. In addition to meeting immediate needs, the response will focus on long-term recovery efforts to help those who have been displaced from their homes.

 

Harvey, now a slow-moving tropical storm, is still dumping rain. The rains are affecting communities across the Gulf Coast from Corpus Christi, Texas, to New Orleans, Louisiana. There are 13 million people are under flood warnings and watches across the Gulf Coast from Corpus Christi, Texas, to New Orleans, Louisiana. Some areas have received as much as 50 inches of rain.

 

“We do have several churches with storm or flooding damage,” said Jeffrey Johnson, district superintendent for the Church of the Nazarene in South Texas. “Many of our brothers and sisters have flooded homes."

 

At least two churches were seriously affected. The Clear Lake, Texas, Church of the Nazarene is completely flooded and the Portland, Texas, Church of the Nazarene sustained significant damage.

 

Bob Broadbooks, director of the USA/Canada Region, has requested prayer for families and individuals in the affected communities.

“We encourage the church to join with others in prayer for those affected and first responders,” he said. “This flood is of historic proportions. As soon as we know how best to serve we will keep our church informed.”
