Update: Salvation Army continues to assist with Norfolk flood relief

Salvation Army disaster workers continue relief efforts in Norfolk, NE. Salvation Army personnel from Lincoln were deployed to Norfolk to assist the Corps with flood duty.



The Army is providing emotional care, food and hydration to emergency workers and flood victims and help with the clean-up operation. The Salvation Army served 300 meals, provided 200 cleaning kits to Norfolk residents and clean-up crews over the past weekend.

In Douglas County, the Omaha Salvation Army emergency services team has been on duty at King Lake, near Waterloo, through Saturday, June 19th. The team remains on stand-by for manpower and equipment if requested.

The Salvation Army will work with other state agencies this week to determine long-term needs in flood damaged areas.

The Salvation Army¹s Gene Eppley Camp, 915 Allied Road, in Omaha had to close its Music Camp this week due to flooding concerns along the Missouri River.
