"Highway access to the most affected coastal communities will be a challenge, so we plan to bring in supplies from Dallas, to the north, as well as from our Storehouse in Mississippi, to the east."

Essential items the organization is preparing to send include children's clothing, shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrushes, body wash, children's books and cleaning supplies for recovery efforts. As soon as conditions allow, World Vision's assessment team from Dallas will travel south to assess the needs of the agency's partners in affected communities, including Hillsboro, Austin and Houston.
