Disaster Recovery offers opportunity to respond to North Texas winter tornadoes


The day after Christmas took a vicious turn in North Texas as a line of storms brought numerous devastating tornadoes. Texas Baptists Disaster Recovery (TBDR) began making plans for recovery efforts immediately following the storms on Saturday evening, according to David Scott, director of Disaster Recovery.

TBDR personnel are assessing damage and are communicating with disaster relief contacts to identify what role Texas Baptists will play in cleap-up and rebuilding of houses and lives.

The twisters affected residents from Ellis County to Collin County. Houses and vehicles were damaged, and there were a number of fatalities.

TBDR works with disaster survivors throughout the long-term restoration process by partnering with local churches, associations and other long-term recovery teams to mobilize volunteers, gather donated funds and raise awareness.
