$5,385 TFMoran Donates to Hurricane Relief

TFMoran, Inc. and TFMoran staff have contributed to the Hurricanes Harvey and Irma relief efforts by donating to the American Red Cross. Together the staff donated $2,885, which combined with TFMoran’s $2,500 gives us a total donation of $5,385.00!

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 3 hurricane that devastated eastern Texas and western Louisiana. Harvey hit the gulf coast of the U.S on Friday, August 25, 2017, bringing 130 mph winds and over 52 inches of rain! Experts estimate up to $180 billion in damage. Residents of the affected areas have lost all their belongings, leaving them homeless, hungry and lost on where to go next. The Red Cross has sent volunteers, donated money and food, and set up shelters. Almost immediately after the storm hit, volunteers headed into Houston to help, getting people safely into shelters and supplying them with food and blankets.

Less than two weeks later, Hurricane Irma started out as a Category 5 hurricane hitting parts of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti on September 5, 2017, leaving heavy flooding and damage. Next, the Florida Keys suffered severe damage on September 8th and 9th as Irma became a Category 4. Making its way to the mainland, Miami and southern Florida, the hurricane was downgraded to a Category 3, with winds of over 110 mph, heavy rains, and fierce winds for the entire state. An estimated 15 million people in Florida were without power with an estimated $100 billion damage. Florida’s Governor ordered  approximately 6.3 million people to evacuate before the hurricane hit.
