Project HOPE Monitors Storms Threatening the East Coast, Caribbean and Southeast Asia
Storms are threatening communities from the Caribbean to Southeast Asia
Posted: September 13, 2018
Project HOPE is monitoring strong storms pummeling the East Coast, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia and we are deeply concerned about the unfolding impact on vulnerable communities. In North Carolina, we are in contact with local officials and partners to assess needs as they emerge on the ground. While Project HOPE’s emergency response typically focuses on international crises, we deploy domestically when we are needed. We are monitoring the path of Tropical Depression Isaac as it passes Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Even limited rainfall and storm surges in the Caribbean region could further damage infrastructure yet to recover from Hurricane Maria last year. Super Typhoon Mangkhut meanwhile poses a severe threat to the Philippines, Taiwan and China.
