Red Cross Still Aiding Recovery Efforts One Month After Hurricane Ida

10/07/2021 11:37 AM | Anonymous

It’s been more than a month since the deadly Hurricane Ida devastated communities from Louisiana to the Northeast and people are still out of their homes, dealing with temporary living quarters and losing everything they had.

The American Red Cross and partners are still there, continuing to work around the clock to provide recovery help after the storm changed lives forever. Follow Red Cross work here.

Hundreds of people impacted by Ida are still depending on the Red Cross and partners for safe shelter in Louisiana and New Jersey. Since Ida first threatened the U.S., more than 40,000 total overnight stays have been provided.

As many as 330 trained Red Cross workers are supporting the relief efforts, either on the ground or virtually. In total, some 3,000 disaster workers from all over the country have helped on the Red Cross Ida relief effort.
