Update: Samaritan’s Purse has deployed two Disaster Relief Units to Texas.

These tractor trailers will stand by in north Texas and move into areas of devastation as soon as weather permits. Stocked with tools, chainsaws and emergency supplies, the units provide the North Carolina-based organization with the equipment necessary to help families devastated by the storm.

*Two disaster relief units, as well as tool trailers and mobile kitchens will soon be working in the hardest-hit areas in Southeast Texas—preparing to tear out damaged drywall, remove flooring, tarp roofs and clear debris.
