Hurricane Sally rapidly strengthened into a category two hurricane before making landfall along the gulf coast early in the morning on Wednesday, September 16th. Due to the slow-moving nature of the storm, Hurricane Sally brought widespread flooding and storm surge to coastal areas of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and the Florida panhandle.
Some areas of Alabama and Mississippi received over 29 inches of rain from the storm with Georgia and the Carolinas witnessing flooding and power outages.
Good360 continues to work with nonprofits on the ground to monitor the situation and prepare to distribute critically needed product in strategic locations impacted by the storm. As a flood event, volunteers are currently “ mucking and gutting ” homes to clear debris and performing mold remediation. This challenging work requires specific products such as buckets, mold remediation products, P-100 respirators, Tyvek suits, safety goggles, hard hats, nitrile gloves, sledgehammers, shovels and cleaning tools. Once this phase is complete, home rebuilding can begin.
Good360 will continue to work to provide needed-product during all stages of the recovery process.
