WNC Wildfire and Flash Flood Disaster Response

April 7, 2022

Western NC is currently experiencing a high number of forest fires in the mountains and flash flooding from heavy rains. The WNCC Disaster Ministries would like to remind you to contact our Disaster Response Hotline to report any significant damage in your area, local churches, or immediate humanitarian needs.

     WNCC Disaster Ministries has UMCOR Cleaning Kits and Hygiene Kits on hand, and other supplies such as tarps for temporary roof repairs. If any of these items are needed or if you have an inquiry for other needed items, contact Ben Rogers.

     This is also a good time to make sure you have our contact information available if the need arises in the future. Hurricane Season is right around the corner, so take some time to look over the resources available through Ready.gov to make sure you are prepared.
