Hurricane Michael

About our Hurricane Michael Response

Hurricane Michael, a Category 4 storm, struck Florida Wednesday, October 10th. 11 hours later, it was still a hurricane making its way through Georgia – over 200 miles inland. Georgia’s Department of Transportation reported that 127 state routes closed due to fallen trees and 120 roads closed due to debris. There were 450,000 power outages reported. Hurricane Michael was a historic storm, devastating families, communities, farmland and businesses along the way.

After assessing the situation in Decatur County, Georgia this week we have decided to deploy. We will start with debris removal, chainsaw work, and some demolition.

This work is not possible without the support from people like you. Please donate today.
