Disaster Appeal: Hurricane Recovery 2018
Update, Saturday, September 15 -- At least 5 people have already died and millions are without power as a result of Hurricane Florence, which made landfall in Wrightville Beach, North Carolina, on Friday, September 14. Much of North Carolina is experiencing torrential rain and life-threatening flooding.
Florence is expected to stall and dump up to 50 inches in North Carolina through the weekend, and surrounding states may see record rainfall as well. Rescue operations are underway in places like New Bern where hundreds of people were rescued from the rising water Friday. Damages are currently estimated to be between 10 and 60 billion.
Update, Saturday, September 15 -- Typhoon Mangkhut is being called the worst typhoon of the year. On Saturday, September 15, Mangkhut made landfall at Baggao town in Cagayan in the Philippines, where it is known as Typhoon Ompong. At least 14 people have died, 42 landslides have been reported, and power and communication lines are down. The region is an important food producing region in the Philippines and harvest season has just begun. Mangkhut is expected to continue on to hit China’s southern coast and Hong Kong this weekend, where preparations are underway.
