Homes are stripped down to the foundations, almost every tree is snapped in half fifty miles inland, and large numbers of people are homeless and don't know where to begin to start picking up the pieces.
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) October 29, 2018
Hurricane Michael was the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Florida Panhandle and the third strongest hurricane to ever hit the United States. In addition to sustained winds of 155 mph, it also created massive tornadoes and a gigantic storm surge that wreaked havoc on everything in its path.
“Homes are stripped down to the foundations, almost every tree is snapped in half fifty miles inland, and large numbers of people are homeless and don't know where to begin to start picking up the pieces,” said Nathan Abbott, founder of the Nathan Abbott Team. “The neighboring communities are doing everything we can to provide relief, but we need your help.”
The Nathan Abbott Team has a Facebook donation page at https://www.facebook.com/donate/341437133081419/. This is the best place to donate if you have a Facebook account. “Right now there are a lot of displaced families. We are partnering with local companies making a positive impact. We will make sure your donations are being used wisely towards families and relief efforts at ground zero of this storm. We are natives to the area who love our coast and will provide a positive difference with your assistance,” stated Abbott.
Gift cards to Walmart, Lowes, and Home Depot are also very appreciated, which can be mailed to the office at 9657 US Highway 98E, Miramar Beach, FL 32550. We have also teamed up with Tyler King of Adventure 30A who is assisting in tree removal from victims’ homes and driveways.
“If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can also donate at the GoFundMe link, http://www.gofundme.com/recovergulfcoast,” added King. “We are all locals of Northwest Florida who want to help in massive ways. We will be using these funds to set up portable kitchens to feed the victims of the storm, to purchase the needed supplies, to clean up victims’ residences, and to help provide some hope for those who need it the most.”
The way people are uniting together to make a positive impact has been extremely heartfelt. These affected areas need all the help they can get and it will be a very long journey. “However, together I know we will get there,” concluded Abbott. “We also encourage you to visit the areas along our coast that were not damaged which includes Ft. Walton Beach, Destin, Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, and most of Panama City Beach. We thrive off of tourism along our coast and welcome you to continue vacationing to the areas next year that were not damaged, so we can continue to provide financial support to the areas that are.”
Anyone who wants to donate food can go to http://food4kidz.org/. Food4Kidz feeds misfortunate children and are in need of food donations now more than ever due to the effects of the hurricane.
