Our part of the country has been getting slammed with tornadic activity over the past few weeks due to the presence of cold Arctic air masses that are diving south and colliding with warm unstable low pressure systems emanating from the Gulf of Mexico. Just last night another round of tornados touched down in western Florida and southern Alabama as yet another cold front pushed its way through Dixie.
Last week I traveled to a devastated area of north-central Tennessee as part of a relief team for Christian Disaster Response. We delivered emergency aid kits to a local church that had a set up a distribution center for storm victims in the town of Lafayette. We also did some field assessments to determine what further assistance was needed in the wake of these destructive storms.
