Disaster Relief teams activated in Wake of Ice Storms
HUGO, Okla. – Oklahoma Baptists Disaster Relief teams have been activated to help in ice-storm affected parts of the state, such as Hugo, Oklahoma.
“We have been on standby since storms were in the forecast, and today we were called on to activate,” said Sam Porter, disaster relief director for Oklahoma Baptists.
“We have a total of seven chain saw teams that will clean trees, and we had a two ton box truck arrive in Hugo this morning and has 4,000 meals on board to get us started serving meals,” added Porter. “We serve to help our fellow-citizens and bring honor to God.”
