Devastation struck early Tuesday when the Kakhovka dam in Ukraine ruptured, sending water into streets and homes along the Dnieper River.
More than 40,000 people could be in the path of the flooding. The dam, in the Kherson region, held back a body of water about the size of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. About 3,000 people have evacuated, and water levels downstream continue to rise.
Authorities, rescue workers and volunteers in Nova Kakhovka are bringing victims to dry land. TBM partner organizations are stationed at a church near flooding. People are lining up for transportation, food and clothes.
"Each time they provide a meal, pray with someone … or transport a family to safety, they are doing so in the name of Christ," said Mickey Lenamon, TBM executive director/CEO.
