Gary Lane Reports from Florida on Operation Blessing's Aid Effort

Gary Lane Reports from Florida on Operation Blessing's Aid Effort Read Transcript

Gary Lane joins us now, live from Orlando.

Gary, what are the conditions there today?

Well, Gordon, here in Orlando the wind has died down--

tropical force, I'd say wind gusts about 45,

50 miles per hour.

But the real concern is north Florida is still

getting hammered a bit, and also storm surge,

and there have been some spin off tornadoes as well.

But it looks like the worst of this damage

will be around Naples, Marco Island, and even possibly, Fort

Myers where it came ashore.

And, but for the other parts of Florida, I think prayer worked.

A lot of people were praying.

And it looks like that had an effect because this storm could

have been much, much worse.

Well, you're there with Operation Blessing.

What are their plans for today and the rest of the week?

Well, they can't really go anywhere right now today

because there's a curfew in place until about 6:00 PM.

So authorities are urging people to stay off the roads,

that they have to assess.

Only emergency vehicles are allowed on the roadways.

And that, I think in many places that ends around 6:00 PM.

So once that's over with, they can assess

where the greatest needs are.

They have a network of pastors in place

throughout Florida and churches.

And they know their communities, Gordon.

They know where the greatest needs are.

And OB has a strike force, many trucks all ready,

350,000 bottles of water, by the way, ready to go

and other supplies where needed.

So we'll be bringing that to you later in the week.

All right, Gary.

We look forward to it.

Thank you.
