An Unprecedented Hurricane Season
Hurricane Irma is already one for the record books. As a Category 5 with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour, Irma now ranks among the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded. Irma has sustained these 185 mph winds for more than 40 hours, a record length of time. And it’s one of the most powerful cyclones to ever make landfall. [Source]
With the devastation of Houston, TX, the impending US-Mainland arrival of Hurricane Irma, and the formation of Tropical Storm Jose following its wake, we need more coordinated support/relief efforts than before. While there are major relief organizations and efforts to aid our fellow man in the wake of destruction, there are thousands more who need our help before these storms make landfall.
Helping Bring Calm Before the Storm
While local governments require mandatory evacuations in many areas, there are many people who simply cannot afford to evacuate. Gas prices are surging, flight prices are going through the roof, and evacuees will still need a roof over their head + food in their bellies.
The fact of the matter is that many people simply don’t have the ways or means to move from these dangerous situations. But together, I believe that we can change that.
Inspired by the Harvey Relief efforts coordinated by Dr. Roni Dean-Burren, I’m using the platform I have via Unfit Christian to coordinate relief efforts for those who are under mandatory evacuation from counties in the path of Hurricane Irma. If you are a coastal Florida, Georgia, or Carolina resident, we’d like to help.
