Many In Need After Tornado

On Wednesday, April 10, Slidell, LA was hit by an EF-2 tornado that wreaked havoc on this town that has survived hurricanes but never a tornado like this. Many buildings and homes were damaged with cars overturned leaving residents traumatized. OGT’s Field Work Director Pete Gnan happened to be in a neighboring town working with recipients from another disaster and he went to Slidell to help Forged By Fire feed the residents. Also pictured is an OGT container which has been in Slidell for storage and containing disaster equipment. This will now be used to clean up after the tornado which in the past has been used for hurricanes. Thank you, OGT supporters, for helping families facing domestic disasters!
