A tornado recently hit parts of the southern and central United States. More than 70 people have died and many more are still unaccounted for. After the tornado made impact, the White House authorized the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to respond to the disaster. FEMA’s priorities are supporting life-saving and life-sustaining actions.

  • Marcus Coleman, director for the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at FEMA in the Department of Homeland Security, said his team is working with faith-based and community organizations as well as partners like United Way 211 to help restore power and provide shelter and critical needs to those impacted by the disaster.
  • Coleman said FEMA has started the disaster registration process and is encouraging people in need of assistance to call 1-800-621-3362.
  • He said one challenge has been having people identify the appropriate documentation to start the recovery process.
