Operation Blessing Helps Tornado Survivors Rebuild

Ad Feedback

CBN's Operation Blessing International is coordinating relief efforts for tornado survivors in Granbury, Texas.

The town, located west of Dallas, was hit last week by an EF4 twister packing winds up to 200 miles per hour.
     
Six people were killed and as many as 100 were injured and many homes in two neighborhoods were obliterated.

Operation Blessing is working alongside residents to remove huge piles of debris.
    
The charity aid group has also partnered with dozens of churches and volunteers from across the state, coordinating delivery of donated relief supplies.
    
Survivors are grateful for the help and say they are thankful to be alive.

"I broke an elbow. It's just amazing - just amazing," tornado survivor J. Terry. "It took my pickup, my car, it took everything."

"We're re trying to rebuild because we lost everything in 2008," Terry continued. "And we started all over and we started over in a 30-foot camper and built our way back up to a house and now it's gone, but we're alive."

Operation Blessing is also working with a team of associates from Home Depot which donated wheel barrows, gloves, boxes, tape and shovels.
