Salvation Army Responds To Multiple Tornadoes in Kokomo, Indiana Area


Kokomo, IN - The Salvation Army is serving survivors and first responders in the Kokomo, Indiana area after last night's storms and multiple tornado touchdowns. At least 8 tornadoes were confirmed in Howard and neighboring counties. The storms left hundreds in need of shelter, food and hydration. The Salvation Army was meeting those needs last night at a shelter set up by the city of Kokomo where more than 220 residents have found refuge. Today, Salvation Army Mobile Kitchens are moving through the storm damaged neighborhoods to provide food and hydration to those returning to what's left of their homes.

Although not damaged in the storms, The Salvation Army Kokomo Corps & Community Center has been without power since the storms hit. Because of this, The Salvation Army is partnering with Kokomo First Baptist Church. Church members will be storing and preparing the food that the mobile kitchens are distributing to local residents.
