Hurricane Zeta – Now History!
Hurricane Zeta came inland just below New Orleans LA as a Category 2 storm, traveled all along the MS Gulf Coast, headed inland and on to the Atlantic bringing strong winds and rain. Several deaths were reported and at least 2.5 million customers were left without power.
MNA Disaster Response Staff have been in contact with PCA churches and congregants in the impacted areas to help with initial assessments. All church facilities are intact and impact to congregant homes is minimal. The major residual issue with this storm is the loss of power.

Lake Charles LA
The MNA Disaster Response Volunteer Staging Site is now open at Lake Charles LA. Volunteers are needed for a variety of work in response to both Hurricane Laura – a major wind event, and Hurricane Delta – a major flood event. Chainsaw teams are still needed as well as muck out teams to help clear out water-impacted homes.

Hurricane Sally and Tropical Storm Beta
Wow, what a busy storm season 2020 has been so far with no indication of slowing down any time soon!
Both Hurricane Sally and Tropical Storm Beta came roaring inland along the Gulf Coast bringing LOTS of rain that has resulted in localized flooding. MNA Disaster Response Staff have been working with local PCA leadership in assessing the needs presented by both of these events. At this time it has been determined that utilizing local volunteers is sufficient to meet these needs.
Hurricane Laura – Volunteers Needed!
Volunteers are needed to serve in helping meet the needs presented by Hurricane Laura. All types of skills are needed but the major request at this time is for chainsaw teams.
