Florida: Hurricane Ian Relief
Our partners, All Hands and Hearts (AHAH), are in Florida responding to Hurricane Ian’s devastating impacts. They are performing chainsaw work to remove fallen and hazardous trees, removing debris, mucking, gutting and doing mold sanitation to get community members back into their homes as soon as possible.
Hurricane Ian started as a tropical depression on September 24 and underwent a rapid intensification, making its first landfall in Cuba as a category 3 hurricane. After gaining intensity to a category 4 hurricane, it made a second landfall on the west coast of Florida near St. Myers on September 28, causing devastating impacts to the coast’s cities and towns along with catastrophic flooding further inland. Ian’s 150 mph winds, storm surge and rainfall caused power outages across the state, damaged infrastructure and overturned cars and boats.
AHAH’s volunteer-powered disaster relief model has allowed them to quickly mobilize volunteers to assist affected communities. Hurricane Ian has created a tremendous need for support and volunteers to help these communities recover.
