Hurricane Isaac Report



As the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, now Tropical Storm Isaac, move north, local MDS leaders are monitoring and reporting the damage in their areas. Reports to the MDS binational office include flooding, power outages, tree damage and roof damage. Total damage is still unknown and access is not possible to most hard-hit areas. MDS will continue to monitor the situation through our local contacts. Trained early response teams and other volunteers in the area are on alert in anticipation of a possible response.

As MDS responses begin and volunteer needs are known, the MDS website, mds.mennonite.net, will be updated.

Garden Spot Village, New Holland, PA, and Weaverland Mennonite Church, East Earl, PA, are collaborating on a PHP home. The wall panels will be built in New Holland in Sept., then delivered and installed at the home location in Cordova, AL. The foundation was built this summer.
