PDA has deployed the National Response Team to support the Presbytery of West Virginia and the Synod of the Trinity as they begin outreach to those affected by catastrophic flooding. The Team met with families impacted by record flooding. The floodwaters are receding in West Virginia and families have begun the massive task of cleaning up following last week’s record flooding in parts of the state. As many as 23 people are known to have died in the flooding, while hundreds of homes and businesses have been damaged or completely destroyed.
