New Disaster Radio Podcast: Hurricane Earl Field Report
A quick Hurricane Earl update for everyone:
The Carolinas appear to have escaped serious damage as Earl stayed offshore according to reports from our area Salvation Army Divisions. The 3 evacuation shelters that opened yesterday have already been able to close their operations after serving more than 250 individuals.
However, personnel remain alert and ready as the storm heads up towards New England where it could still pose a significant threat.
On a side note – Salvation Army units from Puerto Rico to Maine have been gearing up this week in anticipation of Earl. Have you ever wondered what kind of work goes into preparing for and responding to something as extensive and severe as a hurricane?
The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services released a new podcast yesterday that talks about what goes into disaster response, and more specifically how The Salvation Army’s Carolina Divisions disaster team is handling Hurricane Earl.
