Even before Hurricane Michael makes its way to the Atlantic the PCA is already responding to the needs. Reports are slowly beginning to come in as this hurricane has moved inland and is now a tropical storm. This hurricane was historic in power, the strongest to hit the FL panhandle since record-keeping began. An 80 mile section of I-10 was closed Thursday morning as the Florida Highway Patrol worked to clear debris from the roadway.
We already know that two PCA churches in Panama City were catastrophically affected, First Presbyterian Church and Covenant PCA. One pastor’s home was also catastrophically damaged and additional reports are still coming in. MNA Disaster Response is in contact with local PCA leadership and some of our first responder teams are making their way in to help with initial assessments and bringing the first loads of supplies, as well as establishing a Volunteer Staging Site for future REGISTERED MNA Disaster Response Volunteers.
We are asking people who desire to serve to register NOW as a disaster response volunteer so that when a safe volunteer staging site is established we can quickly deploy registered volunteers. ALL VOLUNTEERS WILL BE MOBILIZED THROUGH MNA DISASTER RESPONSE once the Volunteer Staging Site is established – PLEASE DO NOT GO WITHOUT BEING PROPERLY SCHEDULED!!

Hurricane Florence – Volunteers Needed
Major flooding is the calling card that has been left by Hurricane Florence. This flooding extends throughout many areas in NC and SC. Many homes have been catastrophically affected and at least one PCA church in SC has been flooded. Some roads are still underwater but enough have been cleared that we are ready to mobilize disaster response volunteers to help those who have been impacted by this hurricane. Many MNA Disaster Response First Responders and Key Leaders have already been on the ground helping with initial needs and assessments.
Everything you need to know to Give, Volunteer, or Pray can be found on this page.
