Convoy of Hope teams are on the ground in Tennessee after a deadly storm moved through the area yesterday. Multiple loads of relief supplies have already arrived, and more loads are on the way. Each tractor-trailer that arrives is filled with the food, water, and relief supplies survivors of the storms will be looking for as they look to recover. 

At least six people died in the storm, and 23 others were injured. More than 80,000 people were without power throughout the South due to the powerful line of late-autumn storms. Unfortunately, severe weather systems this time of year are not rare occurrences for this part of the country. Thankfully, the severe weather threat for the area should be over within the next 48 hours.
