Local people and people from all over the United States have come to Parkersburg to assist the residents who have lost everything.
The Red Cross has been in Parkersburg all this week helping out tornado victims. The organization has provided 9,000 meals and shelter for those who have nowhere to go. Case workers are still canvassing outlying areas of Butler, Black Hawk and Buchanan counties to try and help more people.

Red Cross donations have been exceedingly generous. They say they have already reached their goal for disaster relief in northeast Iowa. The organization says any other donations are welcomed, but not needed for the Parkersburg disaster.

The Red Cross says no more volunteers are needed in Parkersburg, but if you would like to help out in other areas hit hard by the tornado, you can call the Iowa Concern hotline at 800-447-1985.

The Butler County extension office (319-267-2707) still needs volunteers to walk the fields to pick up debris so farmers can mow hay and plant crops. The Emergency Operations Center is not taking the calls for this effort.

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. --- Items from Parkersburg found some 100 miles away in Wisconsin will be returned to residents of the devastated town. Most of what has turned up are light weight materials, such as photographs, personal papers and check stubs, Prairie du Chien Police Chief Mike King said.

SCAM-Officials are warning disaster victims in northeast Iowa to be wary of scam artists as they recover from this historic tornado.

Authorities say they have heard of people going door to door in some Parkersburg and New Hartford neighborhoods claiming to be approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to remove debris.

But Amanda Johnson, a FEMA spokeswoman says that's not the case, and that no cleanup crews have been approved by FEMA.

The scammers have asked for 10 percent deposit or down payment on work.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Summer weather has finally arrived. We pray for those who have been devastated by loss from storms. We see how magnificent our fellow human beings become when there are those in need. How can we be saddened and rejoice at the same time?
God bless and keep you.
Pastor Lynn

I affirm the REd Cross and their disaster response. I also know that they have pretty high overhead and will only be on site for a short time. However, through both UMCOR and the Iowa Conference Disaster REsponse organization, the church will be there for the long haul, and 100% of all contributions given go for the work -- no "overhead"!
