|Hurricane Florence Relief
Updated on September 18, 2018
Hurricane Florence, one of the strongest storms to hit the Eastern Seaboard in decades, made landfall in North Carolina in the early hours of September 14th as a Category 1 storm. Though downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, within days Florence has caused catastrophic and historic flooding and continues to wreak havoc as it slowly moves north. In some areas, over 30 inches of rain have fallen. The National Weather Service warns the flooding will only get worse in some parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia as rivers continue to rise. As of September 18th, 32 storm-related deaths have been reported, and about 500,000 homes and businesses remain without power in North and South Carolina. Tens of thousands of homes have been damaged.
