We grieve the loss of life and destruction brought on by the storms that moved through many states across the South.

UMCOR is supporting damage assessments in the affected areas and the work of conference disaster response coordinators. Early response teams will be deployed soon to offer initial disaster relief.

You can help, too, by continuing to pray for those affected by this severe weather and by giving to relief efforts. Thank you for your support during this time of disaster.

UMCOR is in prayer for the many U.S. states that are experiencing the dangerous and deadly effects of a string of winter storms. For those enduring widespread blackouts in sub-freezing temperatures, the touching down of multiple tornadoes, and decreased water supply, we offer prayers for safety and protection.

Emergency personnel are leading ongoing rescue and relief efforts. UMC churches are actively being used as warming shelters and community members are being relocated as needed. UMCOR is actively connecting with Conference Disaster Response Coordinators in the affected areas and is ready to respond once the situation evolves.

Our eyes are still on Eta as the storm now brings wind and rain to Cuba and South Florida.

UMCOR is in prayer for those weathering Eta’s landfall and is ready to offer relief and support.

Join us in prayer for those already affected by the winds and rains of Tropical Storm Eta. It is expected to become a Category 4 hurricane before making landfall in Central America. Projections show the storm moving across Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador throughout the week.

UMCOR is in touch with our partners there and is ready to provide relief once more in this historic season of storms.

Please continue to pray for southwest Louisiana.

UMCOR is in communication with partners in Mexico and the U.S. in response to Hurricane Delta, namely the hard-hit state of Louisiana that endured Hurricane Laura only six weeks ago.

The storm’s strong winds and heavy rain have left many without power and caused widespread flooding. Damage assessments that began over the weekend will continue into this week, with the tarping of roofs and mucking out of homes serving as initial relief.

Please continue to pray for the strengthening and endurance of survivors, volunteers, and communities that are navigating one disaster on top of another.

With your support, UMCOR is able to offer disaster-affected communities the support they need.

We pray for those in the path of Hurricane Delta, headed toward Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and the U.S. Gulf Coast.

We also pray for those still in early phases of recovery from previous storms who are finding themselves in yet another projected storm path. Because of this season’s astounding string of storms, sustained momentum for recovery is proving difficult in many Caribbean nations and states across the U.S.

We are grateful for the dedication of countless volunteers striving to offer relief and hope in the face of disaster upon disaster.

In response to the major flooding caused by Hurricane Sally in Alabama and Florida, UMCOR is helping to meet immediate needs with financial support. More than 1,600 cleaning kits from the warehouse in Decatur, Alabama – two truck loads full – have been sent to the impacted areas. The dedicated work of local Emergency Response Teams (ERTs) and conference disaster response coordinators is sustaining the relief effort at this time.

Join us in prayer for a region that has been hit hard by hurricanes in recent years and, in some places, is still in long-term recovery.

Give a gift to support UMCOR’s ongoing work in communities devasted by disaster.

Amazing

There was a lot of destruction at Maplewood United Methodist Church after Hurricane Laura. But notice this cross in what's left of the prayer garden - untouched, with hardly a blemish.

Early assessments of the devastation caused by #HurricaneLaura indicate the impacted region should expect to be in a state of recovery for 3 to 4 years.
