With 100 mile-per-hour winds and seven-foot storm surges, Hurricane Dorian made landfall over Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Friday, September 6. An estimated 350,000 residents in the Carolinas lost power with the landfall, with the entire southeast coast of the U.S. pummeled with heavy rain, high surf and tornadoes, with storm effects all the way up to Massachusetts.
To our Parrot Head PHRIENDS affected by Dorian, our member supported Parrot Head Emergency PHUND is ready to assist.
If you’d like to help those affected by Dorian, there are many ways you can help the Lone Palm Foundation provide financial assistance to those in need:
