Hurricane Laura

Hurricane Laura became an official hurricane shortly after entering the Gulf of Mexico. At present the projections are that this hurricane will be a category 3 when it come inland late Wednesday or early Thursday somewhere along the LA/TX coastline. A hurricane watch has been issued for all of coastal LA down to Houston/Galveston TX; a mandatory evacuation order has already been issued for Galveston. An additional storm surge watch has been issued for much of coastal MS as well, including Bay St Louis all the way to Gulfport MS.

MNA Disaster Response staff are in contact with local PCA leaders in the area of projected impact, including Beaumont TX and Lafayette/Lake Charles LA.

If you are in the projected path of this major storm, please take precautions now. If you need assistance please contact Sherry Lanier at slanier@pcanet.org.

Corona Virus Announcement from MNA Disaster Response

Nashville Tornado 2020 Response

Work in response to the needs presented by the tornado that blew through the Nashville area in early March 2020 has been put on hold due to COVID-19. Once the COVID-19 crisis subsides and travel is no longer restricted, it is anticipated that MNA Disaster Response will assist the local PCA leadership in the Nashville area with building Sheds of Hope. Please check back at this website for more information once it becomes available.

New Bern NC

Due to Covid-19, the disaster response site in New Bern, NC is temporarily not scheduling volunteers. The MNA Disaster Response Staff is closely monitoring the situation and plans to reopen the site when it is safe to do so. Currently there are over three hundred homes identified as still needing repair from Hurricane Florence that hit the impoverished Jones County hard in the fall of 2018.  We look forward to reopening this site to volunteers soon.
