Disaster Appeal: Hurricane Season 2018


Hurricane Florence


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.


Typhoon Mangkhut


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.

Funds will be used for HDR beneficiary grants and/or for the Humanist Disaster Recovery (HDR) program in order to enable volunteer deployments in hurricane-affected areas. As always, FBB’s goal is to maximize donated dollars to be as effective as possible, and potential grantees undergo a thorough vetting process to ensure they are secular, efficient, and fiscally sound.


Please give now to our Hurricane Recovery 2018 appeal to help the communities most in need as quickly as possible during hurricane season.


FBB thanks the American Humanist Association for supporting this Humanist Disaster Recovery effort.
