Hurricane Ian has reached the mainland as a high Category 4 hurricane with wind gusts exceeding 150 mph, an enormous storm surge expected to exceed 12 feet, more than 20 inches of rain with resulting flooding and related tornados that has already caused billions of dollars of damage to houses and businesses throughout Florida’s West Coast and beyond. Ian plunged large parts of the state into darkness and cut off water to millions of residents. Hundreds of thousands of residents were displaced or stranded. Jewish communities and others have significant needs in terms of shelter, recovery, aid and rebuilding.
Jewish Federations are uniquely positioned to help at times of need such as these.
