Hurricane Florence

Tens of thousands of homes have been damaged or destroyed and many families have lost everything. When Hurricane Florence stalled over the Carolinas, it caused devastating amounts of rainfall and catastrophic flooding. It dumped more rain on North Carolina than any prior storm on record!

As an initial response in anticipation of catastrophic damage and flooding from Hurricane Florence, IRT pre-positioned disaster health kits at evacuation centers in North Carolina. Immediately following the storm, IRT delivered 5,400 ready-to-eat meals into the hardest hit areas.

Families are still displaced from their homes and continue to need aid. We are delivering another shipment of 5,400 meals to Wilmington, NC, one of the hardest hit cities. In addition, we are delivering another shipment of disaster health kits for evacuees at seven different evacuation centers in Lumberton, NC.
