Hurricane Ian Disaster Relief: How You Can Help

Posted By: Susan Bishop

On September 28, Ian made landfall in southwestern Florida as a dangerous, high-end Category 4 storm, bringing heavy rain, high winds, and storm surge flooding along the coastline. Ian weakened to a tropical storm while crossing over Florida, then strengthened over the water to a Category 1 hurricane before making landfall in Georgetown, South Carolina, on September 30, resulting in storm surge and inland flooding.

After reaching out to dealer members in the hardest hit areas, NATDA is happy to share that only minor damages to homes and businesses have been reported to date and that many dealerships are back up and running. However, NATDA would like to express its deep concern for those affected by the storm. Ian left a toll of devastation in its wake, including over one hundred lives lost and thousands of people displaced.

If you'd like the help, the following organizations are working to bring relief to storm victims.

Red Cross Hurricane Relief

United Way Disaster Response and Recovery Fund

Mercy Chefs Hurricane Ian Response

Habitat for Humanity

Volunteer Florida, Florida Disaster Fund
