Do Your Part to Help Storm and Flood Victims Across the South
Late April’s severe storms have secured a spot in the record books as the worst outbreak in history. Tornadoes swept the south leaving devastation across East Tennessee and Alabama, and severe flooding persists in West Tennessee.
If you are not among those affected by these storms, you can help your neighbors.
Contact your local Red Cross, church, or other volunteer organization. In the Middle Tennessee area, Hands On Nashville and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee are great resources. Nashvillest offers a great roundup of how to help storm victims in East Tennessee and Alabama.
The Tennessee Farm Bureau is keeping up with the latest on flooding in West Tennessee including historic flooding in Memphis. Find pictures of the floods and the latest updates on the Farm Bureau’s Facebook page, and learn more about the flooding of farmland on the Facebook page for Flood the Fields With Hope. You can also listen to the Farm Bureau’s latest podcasts about the state’s weather disasters.
