Disaster Relief in Nebraska
The Fellowship of Christian Farmers, International is currently deployed in Nance County, Nebraska, near Genoa, after the worst flooding in 50 years. In mid-March, a “bomb cyclone,” which is basically a winter hurricane, hit the Midwest, causing massive flooding throughout Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, and South Dakota, as well as much of the Great Plains. It is considered a bomb cyclone when the barometric pressure drops by 24 millibars in a 24 hour period. Six weeks later, there is still a lot of standing water from the massive flooding, and more heavy rain will only make matters worse for the month of May.
Currently, our 5th wheel command center is deployed near Genoa, Nebraska, with sleeping room for several volunteers. The motorhome pictured above next to the 5th wheel is currently deployed in Marianna, Florida, where disaster relief teams have been working Hurricane Michael recovery.
