TORNADOS IN OHIO

March 14, 2024

"Police in Washington Township, outside of Dayton, told WCMH at least six people were dead between the areas of Lakeview, Midway and Orchard Island after the violent storms, which also brought heavy property damage. Witness accounts of at least five tornadoes were reported in Northern Ohio, FOX Weather reported."

 

"Another suspected twister also touched down about 75 miles to the west in Winchester, Indiana, a town of 4,700 people located nearly 70 miles northeast of Indianapolis."

 

Currently we have a crew working in Greenville, Ohio following last night's tornados. They will then move on to the Indian Lake area.

 

We have also learned that the building where the Winchester Church of Christ in Winchester, IN meets has been destroyed. We are working to get in contact with them to see how we may help them.

 

As of now we are not requesting volunteers, but we do need financial help. If you are able, please help us assist the families that were affected by these violent tornados.

 

We will update about the need for volunteers as soon as we know more. We have one of our coordinators making some phone calls and someone checking the areas to see where the greatest need is.

 

As always please continue to pray for these families.

We have a new volunteer registration system called CERVIS.  Registration steps are as follows:


1. Select “Sign In” and choose “Sign in to Manage your Profile”.


2. Enter your “email” address and your First Name.


3. If you have NOT previously created a “PROFILE” you will do so now.  This profile will remain for future use.


4. NEXT: Follow the steps to volunteer for a specific “OPPORTUNITY”.


NOTE: To volunteer you must select “Register/Apply for an Upcoming Opportunity”.  There will usually be more than one choice. (Example: An Active Disaster Site, the Reclaimed Thrift Store, or the DRT Headquarters.)  BE SURE you register for the correct opportunity.

NOTE:  Our registration system, Cervis, does not allow for same day registration.  Therefore, we kindly ask that you register no later than midnight the DAY BEFORE you will be arriving.  Example: You will be arriving Tuesday so please make sure you register Monday before midnight.  If for some reason you do need to do a same day registration please call Donna Powers at 757-358-4701 and she will be able to assist you.


5. You must select EVERY DAY you will be volunteering.  This must include the day you arrive on site (even if you will not be working that day) and the day you depart (even if you will not be working that day).  This is very important so we can plan for meals, sleeping arrangements, and assigning jobs.  We will be limiting a volunteer stay to a maximum of three weeks at a time.  Your stay can be extended upon approval of the lead coordinator or the directors.


6. You will receive a confirmation of your registration by email (check your spam folder if it doesn’t appear). If you are registering for a DISASTER SITE, be sure to PRINT OUT this confirmation as it has important information about your visit.


7. Thank you, and we look forward to serving with you.
