On August 25, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas, bringing with it strong wind and heavy rain. As relief efforts were just starting it was announced that another hurricane was on the horizon. On Sunday, September 10, Hurricane Irma made landfall on the Florida Keys as a Category 4 hurricane. With her came 130 mph winds, a storm surge of more than 10 feet, and heavy destruction as she trolled her way up the Gulf Coast and onto the mainland. Entire towns were destroyed, families were displaced, and many more lives were lost. This is a heartbreaking and challenging situation for those in the storm’s path and the American Red Cross is working around the clock to provide safe shelter and comfort for the hundreds of thousands of people impacted by this disaster.
