Southern Baptist Rapid Response Assessment Teams are in the field this afternoon after severe storms in Eastern Oklahoma caused damage to homes and businesses in Fort Gibson, Muskogee, Sand Springs and Sapulpa.

Initial reports indicate roofs damaged to businesses and streets and driveways blocked by downed trees, with some homes having trees on their roofs, said Sam Porter, Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma Disaster Relief Director.

“Our trained volunteers are always ready to serve people in need in the name of the Lord,” said Porter.
