ALERT: Hurricane Dorian’s Destructive Path

On Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019, then-category 5 Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Northwestern Bahamas with 180 mile-per-hour winds that generated 18-23 feet of coastal flooding. Nearly 50 people have died and hundreds are missing in what is the worst hurricane to hit the Bahamas in history.

On Friday, Sept. 6, Dorian then officially made landfall along the Eastern seaboard of the United States, slamming into North Carolina, before heading toward Canada.

Survivors across the region are desperate for support, including food, water, shelter, and more. IRUSA has officially launched an emergency and will be working with first responders to assess and assist vulnerable populations.

Please donate to IRUSA’s Global Humanitarian Aid fund now to help survivors.
