Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm on Wednesday, tying for the 4th-strongest storm to hit the Sunshine State. Powerful winds and storm surges knocked out power across Florida, plunging 2 million Floridians into darkness as of Wednesday night. 

This comes after Hurricane Fiona devastated Puerto Rico last week, triggering floods and mudslides that wiped out homes, bridges and other types of infrastructure. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has declared a public health emergency in Puerto Rico.

To help those impacted by Hurricane Fiona in Puerto Rico and Hurricane Ian in Florida, the American Red Cross and FOX have partnered to launch a fundraising site where people can donate to disaster relief efforts.

In Florida, the American Red Cross has more than 500 trained disaster workers on the ground to support sheltering and relief efforts

Leading up to Hurricane Ian, the Red Cross moved truckloads of additional cots, blankets and comfort kits, along with tens of thousands of relief supplies into the region to be prepared to help as many as 60,000 people. 

The Red Cross also sent several hundred blood products to Florida ahead of the storm to ensure patients continue to have access to a readily available blood supply.

In Puerto Rico, the organization has already begun working with the local government to provide support where needed. The agency has more than 200 trained volunteers who are assessing damages and who have provided more than 700 households with emergency supplies.

Virtual health and mental health services from the Red Cross are also at the ready. Additional resources through recovery casework may be provided once damage assessments are made. Relief efforts are ongoing, despite many Red Cross workers not having access to power or water.
