First McKinney is working with the Southern Baptist Command Center at the Carey Baptist Association to help folks in the Lake Charles, Louisiana, area. The relief rollout/assessment has been slow because of the excessive heat and no electricity (expected to last for the next eight weeks). The most destructive part of the storm was the wind damage.
We have called and made ourselves available. The only crews being allowed into the area for the next 2-3 weeks are trained chainsaw and tarp crews. We have been given instructions to call back on September 9 to get a list of specific needs/crews going forward! Work will be going on for an estimated four months minimum - where help and crews are needed.
We have secured with friends at FBC Beaumont a place for cots and sleeping bags as well as access to hot showers/meals. The church is located approximately 70 minutes from destruction work sites.
As soon as the assessment is finished, we will get more details on work and supply needs as well as get teams "staged to leave" as your schedules allow. We will communicate as soon as possible
