Disaster Response


Trish Harris, left, pastor of Noble UMC, helps a Moore homeowner fill out paperwork requesting volunteer aid after tornadoes in the state on March 25.  Most home damage occurred in Moore and in two Sand Springs mobile home parks. United Methodists are taking a primary role in the long-term recovery committee for Sand Springs, said Richard Norman, Conference disaster response coordinator. In Moore, volunteer teams working through the existing UM disaster response office, at First UMC, are placing roof tarps and doing demolition work, Kevin Walker said. Some Moore families whose homes were hit in 2013 are again facing the need to rebuild, Rev. Norman said. Photo by Chris Schutz
