Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas over the greater Houston area and the Corpus Christi area on Friday night, August 25, 2017 with winds topping 130 miles per hour. The devastating winds and landmark flooding inland have made this an unprecedented event for Texas. Thanks to your support trucks filled with needed supplies have been delivered to multiple locations in Texas that are serving as distribution centers. The CSI mobile response trailer made it to Texas and has been serving as a first aid station at one of the distribution centers as well as handing out first aid kits. Financial donations are still needed and can be made to the Hurricane Harvey Fund to help with the ongoing needs because while there is a need for supplies there will be ongoing and continued needs for several months. Be sure to check out our free downloadable resources below. You can use these to help promote this effort in your local church.
As we continue to serve people in Texas, CSI is also getting into position for a Disaster Relief response to support people affected by Irma.The storm is headed on a path straight for Florida and we are closely monitoring the situation and preparing to respond. Stock Transport has generously donated trucks for the Harvey effort and already have trucks being filled in preparation for Irma. The cost to send a 53-foot truck filled with supplies is $2,000.00 if you would like to help support this effort you can donate to the Hurricane Transportation Fund. Trucks have already been sent to Texas and will continue to deliver there as needed and trucks have now begun delivering to South Florida. In the Caribbean an assessment team has made it to The Caribbean to gain a better understanding of what future relief efforts will be needed. CSI understands from past experiences that likely concerns will be water, health and shelter. If you would like to join these efforts it's not too late, you can donate to the Hurricane Irma Fund.
