Springfield, Missouri (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
Convoy of Hope’s Global Disaster Response team has deployed an advance team to the northern Gulf Coast as forecasters predict Tropical Storm Isaac will make landfall there as a hurricane Wednesday.
“We’ve sent a scout truck to the region so they can be in place to assess relief needs wherever the storm hits,” says Jeff Nene, public relations director for Convoy of Hope. “Trucks are also loaded with disaster relief supplies such as food and water in our warehouse in Springfield.”
Tentative plans are in place to dispatch the trucks loaded with supplies as early as Tuesday morning - 24 hours in advance of Isaac’s landfall.
“Convoy of Hope will be watching Isaac’s developments closely and will adjust relief effort plans according to forecasts,” says Nene.
Convoy of Hope’s staff in Haiti is also conducting relief efforts there after Isaac pounded the nation with flooding rains and heavy winds.
