FAST FACTS: SPRING 2020 TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAKS

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.
