Hurricane Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach on the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 storm early Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 10, 2018.
The storm’s heavy rain, high winds, and extreme storm surges caused massive destruction in its path and spawned numerous tornadoes. Hurricane Michael was the first Category 4 storm in recorded history to make landfall in the northeast Gulf Coast.
A week after the storm came ashore, 32 deaths in four states have been attributed to Hurricane Michael. Scores of people are still missing in the hardest hit areas. Communities from the Florida Panhandle through Georgia to the Carolinas and Virginia are still cleaning up, clearing debris, and taking stock of destroyed and damaged buildings as well as downed trees and power lines.
World Vision is responding to this disaster to reach the most vulnerable with emergency supplies including food, clean water, personal hygiene items, flood cleanup kits and more. We are working closely with many of our church partners in these areas to get relief to children and families who need it most.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
