A broken dock, a twisted fence, no sign of a house. Not once nor twice. Commonplace. Telephone poles missing for miles. Weeks before power is restored. Stores closed, no gas, no way to cook, no fan or air conditioning, no water or way to flush the toilet. This is but a glimpse of the devastation of Hurricane Michael. The surreal sight continues for fifty miles in both directions.
Tonight as we say our prayers in the comforts of our homes, may we remember the tremendous need of so many on the panhandle of Florida?
I am but one person, you might say? What can I do? You can use your time, talents and treasures to help many who lost everything, perhaps even family and friends. How many victims are there I wonder who may not even know the hope that lives within us?!
What can I do???
Pray. Give of yourself in His service. Visit the Get Involved tab. Your sacrifice, no matter how small, will bear an eternal reward.
We will continue to monitor Hurricane Chris.
Should we see a significant change or determine that both lives and livelihood may be threatened to our northnern neighbors, ADPR will keep you informed and rally the necessary resources and mission teams.
“Given barely enough ocean heat content (sea-surface temperatures around 80 degrees Fahrenheit), low wind shear, and its location south of a plume of sinking, dry air known as the Saharan air layer, Beryl intensified quickly from a tropical depression at 11 a.m. EDT Thursday to a Category 1 hurricane just 18 hours later.
According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), wind shear has increased and combined with a very dry environment likely causing Beryl to weaken.”
