The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) describes Hurricane Maria as a category 5 Hurricane. Dominica was struck by the eye of the hurricane leaving the country in landslides and debris. The country experienced strong winds of 155 mph. Many homes have been destroyed. The NHC issued hurricane warnings to the countries in the Caribbean such as Puerto Rico, Culebra, Vieques, the U.S. & the British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts, Guadelupe, Nevis, and Monsteratt. Hurricane Maria is projected to move towards Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and other countries that were previously affected by Hurricane Irma, by Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The Center for International Disaster Information recommends sending money rather than sending in material items to trusted organizations. Financial donations are the most helpful because they allow organizations to purchase what is needed the most for the victims of the disaster. It also avoids delays by allowing relief supplies to be purchased near the site of the disaster. To donate to the Hurricane Relief efforts, visit some of these organizations: Guidestar.org, Charity Navigator.org, American Red Cross, Save the Children.
