NECHAMA, based in Minnesota, is active in our home state due to straight line winds.

As NECHAMA enters its second week of response in the Greater Brainerd, MN area, there is still much work to be done. The hurricane-force winds that swept through the county on July 12th knocked down thousands of trees and NECHAMA has been bringing cleanup aid to the most vulnerable populations (disabled, low-income, and elderly) ever since.
