Pray For Albany. Help Them if You Can.

Overnight Saturday, storms hit Albany, GA spinning off tornados for the second time in three weeks. The local community there is devastated. The Marine Corps Logistics Base located there sustained heavy damage as did the neighborhood around it. Marines in the local community and others in the community have been displaced due to the devastation. “Pure destruction” is how local officials are describing the damage.

This is a rural part of a Southern state and consequently does not get a lot of national exposure, but the damage and devastation is both extreme and costly. A lot of people are without homes. Those who have homes have no power and, consequently, have lost all the perishable items in their refrigerators and freezers.

You can donate here to the Salvation Army in Georgia. You can donate here to the Red Cross in Southwest Georgia.

Thank you.
