Baptist disaster relief to be needed in Alabama

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)–Southern Baptists will be called on to help with mud-out and, possibly, feeding units in the wake of Hurricane Danny, said Mickey Caison, adult volunteer mobilization associate with the North American Mission Board.
Now downgraded to Tropical Storm Danny, the storm dumped several feet of rain on the Alabama coast over the July 18 weekend.
“It’s still too early to tell exactly what teams will be needed in southern Alabama,” Caison said. “Most of our relief efforts will be as a result of the rains and flooding, and not because of high winds.”
Caison also said a feeding unit could be dispatched to Dolphin Island. Final decisions will be made by the morning of July 22, he said.
