REDDING, Calif. - Members of Bethel Church's Global Response team are in Florida helping with Hurricane Michael relief efforts.

The group of volunteers left on Sunday, Oct. 14, and have spent the last few days clearing roadways and providing practical help for victims of the storm. 

"We're seeing immense wind damage primarily," said Carl Ladd, coordinator for Response and Recovery. "Things are just shredded. Obviously, getting closer to the coast, you see a lot more flood damage from the tidal surge. And obviously, there's been heavy rain, roofs get torn off by wind, and then flood damage from rain coming in." 

Ladd said that they have sent teams to several disasters, and it's always heartbreaking. 

The team will be heading to Panama City next to continue their relief efforts.
