Disaster Relief Supplies For Historic Hurricane Ian

Field Report by Jonathan Macnab

FLORIDA – Since Hurricane Ian struck southwestern Florida, this historic storm has ravaged cities all along the coastline causing catastrophic damage. High-speed winds and torrential rain leveled areas like Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. Giant boats lie smashed in the streets. Over twenty people have been reported dead, and hundreds have been rescued—with both of those numbers expected to skyrocket in coming days. Right now, your support is needed more than ever

    I lived in Cape Coral and worked Home Health in Lee County. I am worried the little fishing villages on the ends of Pine Island like Bokeelia will be missed. Can someone please check on those folks.

      Thank you for contacting Operation Blessing. We very much appreciate your heart for hurricane survivors in Bokeelia and surrounding areas. We want everyone who needs help to receive it, whether from us or another organization better serving their area.

      Operation Blessing conducted damage assessments in multiple areas along the coast and determined that Port Charlotte is where we will be most effective, but we are also sending aid to other areas. We will look into those areas you mentioned to see what sort of help they need.
