Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief teams are prepared to assist in disaster relief efforts in the northeast part of the country affected by Superstorm Sandy, a spokesman said Tuesday.
Sam Porter, director of Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief, said the three chainsaw teams that include 45 people and one mud-out team of 15 may leave as early as Friday for storm-ravaged areas.
Porter said a feeding team that cooks meals for disaster victims and relief personnel won't be needed, but his other teams are likely to be used because of the types of damage wrought by the storm.
"There is more flooding than they were anticipating," he said, referring to the need for the mud-out crew's aid.
