Americares has deployed emergency response experts to assist in relief efforts for areas in the path of Hurricane Irma. Among the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes ever recorded, Irma is currently a Category 4 storm, packing winds of 150 mph, with the potential to cause catastrophic damage as it aims directly at Florida. Hurricane Irma has already killed more than 20 people, leaving behind massive destruction on several Caribbean islands, including Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Anguilla and Saint Martin.
Americares has professional relief workers ready to respond to disasters rapidly and stocks emergency medicine and supplies in its warehouses in the U.S., Europe and India that can be delivered quickly in times of crisis.
