Springfield, Missouri (PRWEB) September 14, 2013
With several Colorado communities reeling from flooding, Convoy of Hope’s Global Disaster Response team dispatched an assessment team to Longmont, Colo., along with a debris removal trailer and a box truck of supplies.
“We have been monitoring the flooding this week and have been working steadily to make contact with our partners in Colorado,” says Karen Benson, Global Disaster Response Director. “Our team will conduct assessments of flood-ravaged communities in the greater Boulder area and a comprehensive response plan will be developed based on the information our team collects.”
At least three people have been killed and 17 remain unaccounted for since the flooding began. The team’s initial staging point will be at Rever Church in Longmont.
