Our US Disaster Response Coordinator has been in contact with various churches in the affected area, as well as the areas still projected to receive large amounts of rain in the next few days. In addition to supplies scheduled to be in Texas later this week, he is working with the churches to determine the most effective response moving forward. As the rains decrease and the waters recede, we will update our website and reach out with Facebook and Twitter updates on our response progress.
We are accepting donations for Hurricane Harvey and will use them to help in the response. Please choose the designation "Hurricane" if you give online or feel free to write "Hurricane" in the memo line of your check, which can be sent to us at PO Box 379, Noblesville, IN 46061.
Hurricane Harvey is barreling down on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
According to the National Weather Service, by Friday the storm, “is forecast to bring torrential rains and dangerous storm surge that have the potential to create a life threatening flooding situation.” Mass evacuations have already begun as families seek safety.
IDES is closely monitoring the situation and is ready to respond to this storm. In the meantime, please join us in praying for all of the families who are in the path of this storm
