March and April have seen an unprecedented number of powerful tornadoes strike the southeast corner of the United States. As severe storms have destroyed thousands of homes and businesses and caused a tragic loss of life, Salvation Army disaster teams from Texas to South Carolina have been mobilized to provide food, comfort, and emotional and spiritual care to first responders and disaster survivors. Even as Salvation Army units across the country fight back against the coronavirus, masked and gloved Salvation Army disaster workers remain just as determined to also provide aid to those impacted by these heart-breaking storms.
Statistics include services provided after the March 2-3 Middle Tennessee tornado outbreak, the March 28 Jonesboro Arkansas Tornado, the April 12-13 Easter Tornado Outbreak that impacted the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee, the April 19 severe weather outbreak, and the severe weather outbreak of April 22-23. Service delivery for many of these events remains ongoing.
