Southern Weather Warnings

Tuesday’s bout of severe storms  – which included tornadoes – left at least four dead and hundreds of homes and businesses damaged across Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi, among other states. Areas of Georgia remain under flood watch, while thousands still lack power.

With storm-specific medical supplies pre-positioned throughout the affected region, Direct Relief is working to assess the full extent of the storms’ impact on health centers and clinics, and is ready to deploy additional resources upon request.
