Churches, relief agencies respond to flooding needs

Weeks of heavy rain and flooding across Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma have tapered off, but damage estimates continue to surge into the millions, church disaster relief agencies report.
Volunteers with Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort in Nashville, Tenn., and Churches of Christ Disaster Response Team in West Melbourne, Fla., are distributing food, supplies and clean-up kits.
The Independence, Kan., church served as a base of operations for relief work in that area, minister Daniel Seay said. Four trucks filled with supplies by Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort volunteers helped church members meet needs in Mullinville, Pratt, Saint John and other communities.
In the Miami, Okla., area, four congregations helped area residents after 2,000 people were evacuated. Some 500 homes were affected there when the Neosho River crested almost 15 feet above flood stage.
In Texas, the Commerce Street church in Gainesville and the Keller church helped distribute needed items throughout North Texas after flash flooding.
