Over the course of a week, Hurricane Dorian made a total of five landfalls – three in the Bahamas (twice on Great Abaco and another on Grand Bahama Island), a U.S. landfall in North Carolina and a final one in Canada. The storm affected hundreds of thousands of people and left at least 70,000 homeless. It will be months before we know the full scope and scale of damage from Dorian in communities throughout the Bahamas, the Carolinas and across Canada’s Maritime provinces, but it is clear that recovery from the storm will take years.
In our second Hurricane Dorian webinar, experts will focus on tracking what we know to date while also looking ahead to future needs.
Panelist will provide updates on the situation on the ground in affected communities, discuss critical needs and share ways to support long-term recovery. CDP Assistant Director of Major Initiatives Tanya Gulliver-Garcia will moderate the discussion.
This webinar is from 2 p.m. ET/ 1 p.m. CT.
