Hammerhold is located in Oxford, Miss., which was outside of the area affected primarily by Hurricane Katrina but is still dealing with regional issues such as road conditions and the availability of gasoline. Members of Hammerhold are also providing supplies to citizens of Gleann Abhann to their south, who felt the brunt of the storm.
