Deadly Storms Strike Five States

Americares is responding to a string of deadly storms that tore through Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi, spawning tornadoes and floods and leaving a trail of devastation. The storms have killed at least 18 people across five states, and left dozens more injured. 

Within hours of the storm, 10 pallets of pre-positioned water with The Salvation Army were delivered to the Canton distribution center in Van Zandt County, Texas, supporting survivors and relief workers.  To date, Americares continues to provide more aid, including Tdap vaccine, first aid kits, and truckloads of bottled water to local partners in the impacted area.
