Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief Aids in Recovery and Cleanup in Beauregard and Other Areas Hit by March 3 Tornadoes
Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief strategist Mark Wakefield said teams worked throughout the day Monday (March 4) in Lee County as cleanup continued after Sunday’s deadly tornado outbreak.
Access to many areas of the community were restricted as search and rescue continued in the Beauregard community, Wakefield said, but teams were able to tarp some roofs and chainsaw teams worked a few jobs. Wakefield said chaplains were assisting chainsaw teams working with search and rescue, as well as serving at the mortuary team family assistance center.
“We had plenty of volunteers and more coming tomorrow (March 5),” Wakefield said. “We plan to be there prepared to work a full day.” (Information about upcoming disaster relief training opportunities is provided near the end of this post and at https://www.alsbom-gm.org/).
