"Thank the Lord we have missed the bullet again," said Randy Garrett, Arkansas Baptist State Convention disaster relief (DR) director.
While high winds and hail impacted parts of northern Arkansas March 25, Garrett said that following damage asessment by DR volunteers, no Arkansas DR teams were deployed.
According to CNN reports, one person was killed and more than two dozen people were injured as the storm drove through Oklahoma.
Oklahoma's Southern Baptist DR teams responded to affected areas including Moore, Okla. and Tulsa, Okla. March 25, according to The Baptist Messenger, the state Baptist newspaper of Oklahoma.
Garrett told the Arkansas Baptist News that Oklahoma Baptists have not solicited the assistance of other DR teams within their region at this time.
