ELC’s Rapid Response to Communities Devastated by Recent Tornadoes

April 6, 2012

In less than 24 hours following the tornadoes in Dallas-Fort Worth, Pastor Mark “Dean” Blum was on the ground meeting with local officials to determine how we could best support relief efforts. And in less than 48 hours following the tornadoes, we had dispatched a team of over 50 Servant Leaders to aid with area clean-up efforts.

ELC’s Rapid Response to Communities Devastated by Recent Tornadoes

Gov. Rick Perry toured the town of Lancaster by air Thursday and spoke to local officials. He suggested Texas would ask for federal disaster relief for areas hit by the storm.

On Good Friday, our team will also be serving in Lancaster, supporting the clean-up efforts and providing food to recovery workers and volunteer responders.

Texas Tornado Disaster Relief

April 4, 2012

2012 Texas Tornado Disaster Relief Operation Elevation Elevate Life ChurchIn less than 24 hours, the Operation Elevation Rapid Response Team has mobilized in response to the devastation caused by a dozen tornadoes that ripped through the Dallas-Fort Worth area on April 3, 2012. An estimated 650 homes were damaged, leaving many uninhabitable. The greatest concentration of damage was in the suburbs of Arlington, Lancaster, and Forney. Approximately 150 people sought help in shelters overnight. In addition to the tornadoes, the storm produced golf ball size hail that grounded over 400 flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The Operation Elevation Rapid Response Advance Team is in communication with local emergency management officials to coordinate relief support efforts, which include providing supplies, water, and teams of servant leaders to assist in clean-up efforts.
