Hurricane Harvey

Lower Susquehanna Synod Disaster Response Network Prepares for Long-Term Recovery Work in Texas, Florida

The devastation from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are still on everyone’s mind, but long after the storm passes and the headlines change, Lutheran Disaster Response volunteers will arrive with a focus on long-term recovery.

In just a few weeks, the local Lutheran Disaster Response affiliate – the Lower Susquehanna Synod Lutheran Disaster Response Task Force – will coordinate one final disaster response trip to New Jersey, five years after Super Storm Sandy ravaged the East Coast. Then, they’ll turn their sights toward providing on-going assistance to the south.
