22 May Flooding Around a Florida UB Church, a Plea for Help
I received a call from Chuck McKeown, pastor of First Church in Holly Hill, Fla. They had been in a drought condition, but since Monday have received 26 inches of rain. There is nowhere for it to go, and most of the area around Holly Hill and Ormond Beach (just north of them) is totally flooded. Chuck said it is almost worse than when they get hurricanes.
They are setting up the church as an emergency care center. They are in need of any teams that would be willing to come down and help their families and other families in their community to pull carpets and mattresses and help begin the process of recovery. He indicated that most of the folks do not have flood insurance, so this is going to devastate them financially as well.
If you have folks who can and would like to help, please coordinate through Chuck. His contact info and the address for the church are:
Pastor Chuck McKeown
First UB Daytona
1650 Center Avenue
Holly Hill, FL 32117
His cell would probably be the best way to get him.
