On October 22, 2012, Hurricane Sandy formed in the western Caribbean Sea. What started as a tropical wave progressed to a hurricane in two days, making its first stop in Jamaica. Over the past week, Hurricane Sandy has made its way through Cuba, Haiti, most of the east coast of the United States, and eastern Canada.
The death toll has reached approximately 160, with 80 of the fatalities in the U.S. alone. As fatalities increase and survivors are left with limited resources to counter the destruction, our NGO partners are providing necessary relief on the ground.
