Hurricane Relief Fund
With the Gulf getting pummeled this season, I was looking for a way to help out the communities of Orange Beach and Lake Charles. I found a great Gofundme that would like to benefit the southern seaside states.
We are currently experiencing one of the most active Atlantic hurricane seasons on record. With 20 named storms so far, we must brace ourselves for what’s to come.
After making landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, Hurricane Laura’s intense winds ravaged the Texas/Louisiana coastline and threatened to flood parts of the state. The powerful storm has left extensive damage in its wake, from fallen power lines to damaged properties to chemical fires.
Similarly, Hurricane Sally battered southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. After making landfall as a Category 2 hurricane, the storm flooded entire neighborhoods and left 500,000+ residents without power. Water rescues are currently underway but hazardous debris and live wires have significantly slowed the process.
As we react in the aftermath, emergency relief efforts are underway to help those impacted, from locating survivors to erecting temporary shelters to offering medical services.
