We were spared the drastic chaos of this category 5 hurricane on the west coast of Florida where I reside. If you missed my post on #hurricane #matthew click here.
Hurricane Matthew pummeled through the east coast of Florida and continued along the coast up to South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Many, many were flooded. Cars disappeared under the high-rising waters while homes were threatened with powerful winds and water destruction along with live electrical power lines which could cause fires.
The islands of Cuba, Bahamas and Haiti were devastated. Haiti was among the worst. If you’d like to donate to their recovery fund click here.
It’s the U.S. Fund for UNICEF helps save and protect the worlds most vulnerable children. Rated one of the best charities to donate to, 90% of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.
I’m sure there are a great many organizations asking for help.

We had prepared for the impending storm. There were news broadcast announcing #HurricaneMatthew’s arrival for weeks before. Having been through a few hurricanes I took their words seriously. We were fortunate to have had no incidences at all. A lot of rain and wind was all we experienced. Our family that resides on the east coast of Florida weren’t fortunate. They were without power but managed to get through until it was restored almost 18 hours later. There is still the aftermath of cleanup that comes with these hurricanes.
We all feel truly blessed with the good fortune to have been spared any discomfort. Now, it’s time to help those who weren’t spared.
