The Salvation Army Responding to Devastating Tornadoes in Oklahoma
The Salvation Army is currently mobilizing disaster response units to serve hard-hit areas in Central Oklahoma, including Moore and South Oklahoma City. The Salvation Army has been responding to many impacted areas throughout Oklahoma since yesterday. Major Steve Morris, Divisional Commander of the Arkansas-Oklahoma Division of The Salvation Army, which is handling the initial Emergency Disaster Services said, "The Salvation Army is calling on everyone to pray for all of those impacted by the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma." Weather officials said over 50 tornadoes have struck in the past few days. "Many of these impacted communities will take months or even years to recover. The Salvation Army is committed to being there with them throughout and providing aid wherever it's needed."
