Volunteers with North Carolina Baptist Men’s disaster relief ministry are responding to damage from a tornado that struck areas of Burke and Rutherford counties Jan. 11.
Volunteers arrived Wednesday evening and are working out of First Baptist Church Icard in Connelly Springs. Teams are removing debris and placing tarps on damaged roofs. According to reports from the area, 15 people were injured.
Recovery teams plan to work through Saturday and will decide if they need to extend efforts into next week.
