Tropical storm Isaac is doing something that many prayed it wouldn’t, follow the same path as hurricane Katrina did seven years ago; an eerie reminder that Mother Nature has control. Rolling northwest over the open Gulf of Mexico, Isaac now a category 1 hurricane, barreled past the Florida keys on Monday, ultimately adopting Katrina’s trail to the day. Charity organizations are gearing up, preparing for the response.
Already, Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes through flooding and mandatory evacuations for Isaac, including around a thousand medical patients with special needs. These displaced individuals will need food and medical supplies, supplies we can trust that Disaster Relief Transport, and charitable organizations like it, are ready to move.
