“We are lining up our rapid response volunteers to help with clean-up should the need arise,” said World Renew DRS Director Bob Laarman. “We are also in touch with our contacts all along the East Coast to let them know that we are praying for them and available to help after the storm.”

World Renew is developing plans to send volunteers to North Carolina to help with clean up starting the week of Sept. 19, 2019.

The storm made a direct hit on the northern Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane, where the destruction and lives lost are still becoming known. World Renew will support those dealing with catastrophic damage to their homes and the environment in the Bahamas and East Coast of the U.S.

In eastern Canada, Dorian’s Category 1 wind and rain blew down trees, blocked roads, and caused power outages for 400,000 residents in Nova Scotia. World Renew regional disaster managers in eastern Canada are connecting with response leaders to determine the need for World Renew services there.
