Hurricane Ian crashed into Florida’s Gulf Coast on September 28 as a Category-4 storm, bringing catastrophic winds, rains and storm surge to cities in its direct path. The massive storm carried 155 mile-per-hour winds, putting the storm just below the Category-5 threshold. Florida residents are expected to face widespread flooding, power outages and wind damage to homes in the coming days.
Send Relief is working closely with Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams to meet immediate needs in the aftermath of the storm.
A Send Relief truck packed with bottled water, temporary roofing, shockwave and other emergency supplies will arrive in Florida as soon as the storm passes. Send Relief is also deploying a rescue boat manned by North Carolina and Tennessee Baptist disaster relief teams for search and rescue missions on Thursday, September 29.
Volunteers will begin emergency feeding, flood recovery, debris clean-up and other relief efforts as soon as officials say it is safe to begin deployment.
Your gifts to Send Relief’s 2022 Hurricane Response Fund are vital to these relief efforts.
Thank you for praying for the people impacted by this massive hurricane, as well as the many volunteers that will be meeting immediate and long-term needs in Florida.
