ContactRelief's Disaster Decision Team is monitoring the storm and determining the areas with minor, moderate, severe, and extreme damage. Areas with minor damage are shown in the graphic above. Contact should be suspended in areas under Hurricane Warning, Hurricane Watch, Tropical Storm Warning, and Storm Surge Watch and Warning alerts. We expect to maintain this recommendation for 48 hours and to issue additional Hurricane Damage alerts and suspension recommendations for longer periods in the areas with moderate or higher damage.
