Texas Baptist Men’s state feeding unit will leave the organization’s headquarters June 29 and head toward South Texas where it will be ready to provide as many as 20,000 meals a day to 22 shelters in the wake of Tropical Storm Alex.
The storm, which is rotating in the Gulf of Mexico, is forecast to make landfall along the Rio Grande Valley and northern Mexico coast on Thursday morning. On Monday morning, the storm sustained 60 mph winds and forecasters say it could strengthen. Officials fear possible flooding from the storm.
“Texas Baptist Men is prepared to respond to tropical storm Alex in any form or shape it may take,” said Gary Smith, TBM’s volunteer disaster relief coordinator.
