On July 19th, a series of 12 reported tornadoes tore through Iowa, United States. The tornados caused widespread damage across the midwestern state and resulted in several injuries.
The Des Moines Register reported details of one EF-3 that went through Marshalltown, Iowa. “It took wide and ferocious swipes out of the town’s sprawling Lennox HVAC supplies and parts factory; rocked homes off their foundations; sent garages missing; spun trees across roadways; and hurled power lines across the streetscape.”
Airlink partnered with United Airlines and Team Rubicon USA to send 24 volunteers from across the United States to Iowa to assist with debris removal, case management, volunteer management, and expedient home repair.
