NORMAN–Trained storm damage assessment teams with the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma’s (BGCO) disaster relief operation immediately surveyed storm-affected areas on May 6.
According to BGCO disaster relief director, Sam Porter, teams are assessing damage in Norman, Southwest Oklahoma City, Bridge Creek, Newcastle and other areas affected by the tornadic storms.
“Our disaster relief volunteer assessors help us identify immediate needs and ways to serve,” said Porter. “We are here to serve our neighbors in a time of need, motivated by the love of Jesus Christ.”
The BGCO’s disaster relief operation, a non-profit, faith-based group which offers a wide array of services including debris clean up and feeding, has been involved in responding to disasters of all sizes and took a leading role in the relief effort in the wake of the May 2013 tornadoes.
