Philanthropy's Response to Hurricane Ian
Resources to Guide Philanthropic Response
After causing an island-wide blackout on Cuba, Hurricane Ian hit Florida's west coast as one of the strongest and deadliest storms to ever make landfall since 1935. The hurricane made contact as a Category 4 storm, with a windfall of 150 mph and record-high storm surges. There were 125 confirmed deaths and hundreds of people rescued by the Coast Guard. At least 2.6 million people had no power or water, and has caused over $50 billion in incurred losses.
