Disaster Response Responds to Eagle Pass Flooding

Disaster Response is currently responding to the floods that occurred in Eagle Pass last week.

According to Conference Disaster Response Coordinator Eugene Hileman, 150 homes were flooded and an additional 200 suffered water damage when nearly 10 inches of rain came through leaks in roofs and windows.

209 flood buckets and 80 health kits were delivered to the area immediately.  The supply of flood buckets is still more than adequate due to the great response following the Blanco River Flood last May. 

People wishing to respond to either the fires or the floods near Smithville should send gifts to the Rio Texas Conference Disaster Fund.
