Our storm update series takes us from ongoing Moore, Oklahoma tornado recovery to the Jersey Shore, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in late October and early November of 2012.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be revisiting the sites of recent natural disasters to see how recovery is coming and how we can continue to help their efforts. And we’re starting in Moore, Oklahoma.
Smartphones are a safety net that keep users equipped with the knowledge, communication, and tracking capabilities necessary to save lives before, during, or after a severe weather disaster.
Once again, our hearts are heavy as people across the South and Midwest regions have been devastated by tornadoes. Over the weekend, 42 tornadoes in 10 states destroyed homes and cities in the blink of an eye. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of these families.
Here are some photos from our recent donation of radios to Ear To Our World.
From the tornadoes in Alabama to the tsunami in Japan, we’ve seen plenty of disasters this year. Each and every time these disasters strike, an amazing thing happens — other people swarm to help. Hurricane Irene is no different. While the damage might not have been as widespread, there are still plenty of people in need of help.
Recently we received a thank you note from Jen and Guy of Zanmi Lakay, expressing their gratitude for our donation to Haitian relief.
In order to help, simply donate an FR160 Microlink through Etón Corporation and Etón will match contributions by donating an additional safety product to help victims in Japan. Your support will provide light, energy and information accessibility during this time of need.
If you’re looking for a way to donate to Japanese relief efforts, please see how both the Canadian and American Red Cross are responding, and how you can lend a hand in this time of tragedy.
As Hurricane season draws to a close, there are still weather emergencies out there and we would like to get you prepared.
