Crisis Response International is working with one of our long time partners (Thirst No More) this week to evaluate how we can best assist homeowners affected by recent tornadoes in the Dallas, TX area.

Currently, we are surveying the homeowners affected to see how we can help them. We hope to have  something firmed up by Thursday, December 31. If the decision is made to deploy, CRI will notify its trained and certified responders.

Missouri Floods

We are also evaluating the situation along the Mississippi River for possible deployment.Some communities already hit are now being threatened by high waters on the Mississippi and its tributaries.

Missouri braced Wednesday for record floods from the raging Mississippi River and its tributaries that have already shut down more than 200 state highways, forced the evacuation of residents in some low-lying areas and prompted Gov. Jay Nixon to activate the National Guard for a “massive flood fight.” Nixon warned that low temperatures would further complicate the battle to protect life and property from this rare winter flood. “This is not a summer flood, this is dangerous,” he told CNN on Wednesday.

The Mississippi River is expected to crest in downtown St. Louis Thursday at 43.7 feet, nearly 14 feet over flood stage. The torrent is expected to hit Memphis on Jan.3.

We will keep you updated as developments occur. Thank you for your prayers and support.
