Big Storm's Comin' Soon
By: Portlight , 5:21 PM GMT on August 22, 2012
Tropical storm Isaac continues to churn towards the islands and, eventually, somewhere along the US coast.
Haiti is at particular risk...as several hundred thousand people there still live in open, unprotected areas as the result of the earthquake. Because of our previous involvement in Haiti, we are able to respond as needed. We are also working to do what we can to help in preparation efforts.
Our domestic response volunteers are right now fine tuning our response once Isaac hits the US coast. We are having daily conference calls to facilitate bringing our plans into focus. We expect to have everything nailed down by the end of the day Saturday...with our teams rolling to appropriate staging areas Saturday night.
People are going to suffer from Isaac. And we're going to help them.
As usual, your support is critical. It's difficult to imagine disaster before the fact. But we are encouraging you to try. Please help as you can. Unserved, under served and forgotten people will be counting on you. Seriously. With your help, we are able to serve those who fall through the cracks.
