How to Help
Cash is the best donation. After a disaster, people want to help, but it’s important to donate responsibly. When people support voluntary organizations with financial contributions, it helps ensure a steady flow of important services to the people in need after a disaster.
Identify what is needed. Before donating supplies, connect with organizations working in the affected area to learn how much and when supplies are needed. Used clothing is never needed in a disaster area. Unwanted donations can overwhelm charities on the ground because they need to be received and sorted.
Family and friend reunification. Communications and electrical systems are actively being repaired and stabilized. If you need assistance locating a missing friend or relative, call the Red Cross at 800-733-2767 and provide as much detail as you can to assist in potentially locating your missing loved one.
Post-Storm Safety Tips
Safety is the number one priority after any storm. Be careful in areas with damage, flooding and power outages.
Use generators safely. Keep them outside and far away from your home.
Avoid wading or driving through floodwaters inside, outside and around your home.
Clean up safely. Wear protective clothing and gear, use a mask and ask for help moving heavy debris.
