Debbie Relief Update From Australia
June 16, 2017
Queensland, AUSTRALIA - Two months have passed since powerful tropical storm Debbie swept through northern Australia, but the disaster relief efforts are still going strong. In late March, the former cyclone brought devastation and unrepairable destruction to many communities. Reports show Cyclone Debbie, a category 4 storm, was the most powerful storm to hit the region since Cyclone Yasi in 2011. Some areas were said to have been hit by four month's worth of rainfall in just 24 hours.
Queensland, AUSTRALIA - The UNITED SIKHS humanitarian aid team is engaging to serve langar (a hot meal prepared by the Sikh community) to thousands of evacuees affected by Cyclone Debbie, a category 4 Cyclone that hit northeast Australia earlier this week.
