Disaster Relief: 2017 Hurricane Season

Hurricane Maria
With Hurricane Maria reaching Puerto Rico as a Category 4, this hurricane season became the first on record to feature three Atlantic hurricanes making landfall anywhere in the United States at Category 4 intensity or stronger.  Puerto Rico was left without power, its electrical grid having been effectively destroyed. Insured losses from Maria are estimated at $40-85 billion, most of which were in Puerto Rico, making Maria's cost comparable to that of previous Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Please help by donating today to support relief efforts.

Hurricane Jose
Hurricane Jose is now a tropical storm watch in coastal parts of North Carolina, Massachusetts and New England. Jose was forecasted to stay offshore throughout its path and has caused some flooding in parts of North Carolina and heavy rains in New York.

Hurricane Irma
For the 1st time in 100 years the US was struck by a second Category 4 Hurricane when Irma barreled into the Florida Keys on September 10. Massive evacuations helped ensure as many people as possible made their way to safety before the storm hit. 

Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane season got off to a strong and early start this year. Hurricane Harvey hit Texas as a Category 4 event on August 25 and left a path of destruction across two states. This storm has been called a “landmark event” in part because it remained over an area longer than most storms in recent memory.

The statistics continue to rise across the U.S. and the Caribbean - more rescues, higher rainfall totals, an increasing number of displaced residents, and - sadly - a rising death toll. The path to recovery is long, but it starts with generosity.

At this time, both of the AAFP Foundation disaster relief partner organizations are providing much needed goods and services. Your support delivers:

  • Food
  • Clean water
  • Hygiene kits
  • Medical assistance

Please help by donating today to support relief efforts.
