On Sunday and Monday, May 19 and 20, a number of tornadoes moved across the area of Oklahoma served by Indian Nations Presbytery – the worst being an EF5 tornado that struck Moore, Oklahoma on May 20. The Moore community has sustained major damage to homes, businesses, schools and hospital – and mourns the loss of at least 24 lives. We thank you for the concerns expressed and prayers offered on behalf of the Moore community. Oklahomans are responding with immediate assistance through the Red Cross and other agencies. The Urban Mission is providing food and water to those who are without power but are still in housing. They also are providing gift cards for basic needs. The presbytery will continue to work with The Urban Mission and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to coordinate immediate and long-term needs. A PDA response team will be on the ground to assist with the response to this disaster.
