The storms left a path of destruction across Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, according to a Matthews 25: Ministries spokesperson.

“Our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent tornado outbreak across the United States,” the organization wrote on social media. “We are working with partners in the impacted areas and shipping aid to be distributed to those in need.”

Houses and businesses were damaged Friday night after tornadoes hit at least eight states and thousands of customers were also left without power in many areas. At least 26 people were killed, according to the Associated Press.

They will be responding to the storms and expect to be fully operational later this week after another round of severe weather passes, a spokesperson said.
