KANSAS CITY, MO — Our Disaster Services team is responding in the Kansas City area after tornadoes touched down yesterday evening. “We deployed a team to Jackson County with a load of emergency relief supplies,” says Stacy Lamb, U.S. Response Director for Disaster Services. “Upon arrival, they will assess the area to identify additional needs.”

We will work with local officials and partners in the area to distribute food, water, hygiene kits, cleaning supplies, boxes, totes, and more. We are also sending a truckload of water to Odessa later today where the water treatment plant lost power due to the storms.
