Nearly 5 years after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, Hurricane Fiona has swamped the island with as much as 30 inches of rain leading to catastrophic flooding.

What’s happening?

  • People are without power and some lack access to drinking water while filtration systems are down.
  • Severe mudslides have also impacted access to remote communities and the ability for disaster response organizations to help and provide life-saving relief.
  • Disaster relief organizations are working to quickly mobilize and support those most in need – from the immediate life-saving relief to longer term recovery and rebuilding.

Where can you support?

Groundswell has compiled a list of organizations providing relief efforts you can support directly within the app.
