What Happened:

Hurricane Harvey reached tropical storm status on August 17, 2017 and continued to develop and intensify, becoming a category 3 hurricane that finally dissipated on September 3, 2017. It was the costliest natural disaster ever on record in the U.S. and the first major hurricane to make landfall on U.S. soil since 2005. There were 91 confirmed deaths and more than 300,000 people were left without electricity. Many people were displaced and thousands of homes were destroyed or sustained major damage.

What MDS Is Doing:

Mennonite Disaster Service is grateful to be sharing space at the Restoration City. There will be 4 buildings that we will use for housing and dining, with all meals provided by the campus. MDS is planning to focus on the new construction of 4 homes in the Wharton area. There will likely be few if any repair jobs.
