Hurricane Michael

PDA is responding to Hurricane Michael. Before the devastating Category 4 Hurricane made landfall, PDA reached out to the presbyteries in the path of the storm to offer resources and prayers. We have deployed National Response Team members for an initial deployment to meet with Presbyterian and community leadership in developing short-term response plans and provide a ministry of presence. Initial grants have been disbursed to each of the affected presbyteries and church damage grants, which are used for continuing mission, are being disbursed as we receive the requests.

Easter tornadoes

During the weekend of Easter 2020, several southeastern states experienced severe storms and tornadoes. Throughout the two-day outbreak, a total of 140 tornadoes touched down across 10 states, inflicting widespread and locally catastrophic damage. We mourn the lives lost and lift up the communities responding to these tornadoes while also dealing with the restrictions of COVID-19.

PDA has virtually deployed National Response Team members to support the response while also granting funds. We continue to be in touch with the affected presbyteries about long term recovery needs.
