Convoy of Hope sprang into action on Friday night after a tornado tore through Andover, Kansas. Within hours, Convoy had food, water, and relief supplies en route to the disaster zone. 

The tornado, which struck just outside of Wichita, uprooted trees, slung cars around, leveled homes, and left thousands without power. Early reports indicated that as many as 1,000 structures were damaged. 

“The windows started breaking, and we started hearing things hit the house,” Mandy Fouse told The Wichita Eagle. She and her children took shelter in their basement while the tornado tore through their neighborhood. “We’re probably the lucky ones. Even with all our damage, we’re the lucky ones.” 

Convoy will post updates here as the response continues.
