3 Storms, 2 Years, 1 Massive Response
Back in 2017, a deadly storm season brought hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria hurtling into the lives of millions. Powerful winds and storm surges razed homes to the ground. Catastrophic flooding added to the damage and put even more lives at risk. But from the moment the floodwaters receded, generous American Red Cross donors like you helped deliver hope to those affected by the storms.
Recovery efforts began in earnest two years ago, and they continue today. In the bulletins below, you’ll discover updates on the progress we’ve made and ways in which your ongoing support will prove crucial.
