Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida panhandle on October 10. The winds and rain continued across Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia with widespread flooding. These areas had already been hit the previous month by Hurricane Florence. Michael killed at least 36 people and caused an estimated $25 to $38 billion in damage. “It looked like a war zone,” UCC Disaster Ministries Executive Zach Wolgemuth said. He visited Panama City and Mexico Beach, Fla., a few days after the storm.

The UCC’s Response

“We will be supporting long-term recovery from Hurricane Michael,” Wolgemuth said, encouraging donations of money for that purpose (see above). 

The widespread impact from Florence, Mangkhut and Michael 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.

An Eastern Regional Disaster Specialist has been hired and is on the ground helping to shape UCC Disaster Ministries’ response.
