It’s been more than a month since the deadly Hurricane Ida devastated communities from Louisiana to the Northeast and people are still out of their homes, dealing with temporary living quarters and losing everything they had.
From the Gulf Coast to the Northeast, the Red Cross is working tirelessly alongside our partners to help people recover from Hurricane Ida.
It’s important to remember that responding to disasters is a team effort and no single organization can do it alone — this is particularly true in this current environment.
All numbers are cumulative and represent the Red Cross Hurricane Ida response in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas and Virginia from August 26 – October 4, 2021.

The Red Cross honors donor intent and all donations earmarked for Disaster Relief will be used to help people affected by disasters, big and small. Americans work hard for their money, and we’re committed to being the very best stewards of our donors’ dollar. The Red Cross keeps our expenses low and an average of 90 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need.
