Convoy of Hope’s Southeast Tornadoes Response is underway.

Convoy of Hope teams are en route with relief supplies to the Florida Panhandle in response to severe weather that began Monday night and is expected to continue into this evening. Several counties are under tornado warnings as the storm system continues to move through the Southeast. 

A tornado ripped through Marianna, Florida, early this morning. Photos and videos show flattened businesses, overturned semitrucks, and destroyed campgrounds. Convoy is sending tarps, totes, cleanup supplies, water, and hygiene kits to help communities as they begin recovery efforts.

As the storm system continues across the region, Convoy of Hope is prepared to respond whenever and wherever needed. To help Convoy bring relief and hope to those affected by severe weather in the South, donate here.
