Harvey and Irma hurricane response

Harvey began as a major category four hurricane – the first to make landfall in the US in 12 years. It triggered flooding in low-lying areas and near water outlets and rivers. The National Weather Service cautioned that the storm was so severe that many areas could be uninhabitable for months. AMURT has volunteers in the area and are appealing for cash donations.
