Storms Demolish Towns in Indiana & Kentucky
Somebody Cares disaster assessment partners are on the ground in Indiana and Kentucky responding to a deadly storm system that spawned tornados on Friday, March 2, causing damage to structures such as homes, schools and churches, and even taking lives. According to news reports, at least 37 deaths and hundreds of homes were destroyed in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, and Georgia.
But amid the flattened homes, gutted churches and crunched up cars, startling stories of survival emerged, including that of a baby found alone but alive in a field near her Indiana home, a couple who were hiding in a restaurant basement when a school bus crashed through the wall, and a pastor nearly buried in his church’s basement.
SCA’s partners are connecting with local emergency management personnel, pastors and partner-organization in Indiana and Kentucky to assess the damage.
