Americares has deployed an emergency team to respond to the immediate health needs of communities on the U.S. Southeast Coast affected by the destructive power of Hurricane Florence. The massive storm has brought damaging winds, devastating storm surges and torrential rainfall, producing catastrophic flooding. Governors of the affected areas declared states of emergency, and survivors are facing a major relief and recovery effort.
Americares is more recently responding to Hurricane Michael, the most powerful storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in the area's history. Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida as a life-threatening Category 4 storm, delivering a catastrophic impact with peak winds of 155 mph, dangerous rains and deadly storm surge. The storm slammed the Florida Panhandle mid-day October 10, leaving a path of near total devastation, fatalities, and extensive damage to infrastructure including health facilities. Americares is already working with partners in the area and deploying an emergency team to provide immediate support for health care in the aftermath of the storm.
Americares has a long history of responding to disasters. We respond to an average of 30 disasters each year; we continue providing relief to communities affected by other recent natural disasters such as wildfires in California or flooding in the Midwest, and infrastructure damage left by last year's Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
