Resources for communities affected by April 2024 tornadoes

April 30, 2024

Numerous communities across the Midwest faced traumatic severe weather events this past weekend. On April 26, tornadoes across Nebraska and Iowa destroyed homes and shook communities across the region. The following day in Oklahoma, another string of tornadoes made a devastating mark — leaving 100 people injured and four killed. 

The Mid-America MHTTC sends an outpouring of compassion and condolences to the members of these communities, and we wish you nothing but strength and hope as you move forward.

If you, or a loved one, are facing increased fear, stress, or difficult emotions following the storms — know that you are not alone, and that help is always available. See below for a list of resources available for adults, teens, and children.
