ALAN Donors and Partners Ready to Respond to Recent Severe Events

REFER TO OFFICIAL SOURCES FOR THE LATEST STORM INFORMATION.

ALAN is providing coordination for logistics support for the severe weather that has affected the US this week. Response activities are underway in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Virginia, with federal disaster declarations approved for Alabama and Mississippi. In some areas, search and rescue and life safety activities are still ongoing, which means that damage assessments and requests for support are still emerging. It may be several days before certain types of requests surface, as supplies need to be replenished. This report includes information on items and services being requested, as well as resources for businesses and individuals impacted by the storms.

This report is not exhaustive; please refer to media and the official information sources for the most comprehensive and current information.

 

ALAN ACTIVITIES

ALAN is maintaining close contact with our Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and local, state, and federal emergency management partners.  As unmet needs or gaps are identified they will be posted in this section and on the donations management portal.  Offers of support may also be posted on the portal or forwarded to Kathy@ALANAid.org for review and processing.  Offers should include product / service, quantity, location, and contact information.
