The Current Situation – Florence
Hurricane Florence roared ashore in the U.S. Carolinas September 14, 2018, then lingered over the region, causing catastrophic flooding, including prolonged significant river flooding, to the Carolina coast and inland. More than 40 people in the Carolinas and Virginia were killed. The environmental impacts of the storm’s damage are vast, and current estimates of losses range from $38 to $50 billion.
The UCC’s Response
The widespread impact from Florence and other storms has prompted UCC Disaster Ministries to establish a 2018 Hurricane Relief response that will allow us to expand our current capacities and respond through our established networks and partners in the threatened regions, states and territories. (See above for how to donate.)
An Eastern Regional Disaster Specialist has been hired and is on the ground helping to plan the UCC’s long-term response.
2018 Funding: $10,000
