I just saw that there are 4 deaths attributed to this storm. My thoughts and prayers are with the families affected.

Be aware of people soliciting money to help victims of the hurricane. Especially via Email, Facebook, etc. Contact the organization directly through a trusted contact number, check them out via the BBB National Charity Report Index.

Be wary of emails with subject lines related to the hurricane, hurricane relief, etc.

I prefer to donate via my Church or the Red Cross or other well-known charities.'

Most also don't want clothing and household stuff,they get overwhelmed and then have to get it properly disposed of.
After 9/11 and Katrina I wouldn't give the red cross a dime!

I suspect we have members from the Carolinas although I cannot think of who exactly. So many people are without power!
