Google, Apple each donate United States dollars 1 mln for Hurricane Florence relief efforts

At least 17 people have died due to storm-related incidents - though some outlets are reporting the death toll has reached 19 at this time.

Members of New York Task Force 1 have been in North Carolina since last week.

MillerCoors is donating 200,000 cans of water to those impacted by Hurricane Florence, to be distributed at the Red Cross and community shelters.

The Red Cross has sent volunteers to help those impacted by the storm. To bolster relief efforts, the Red Cross is mobilizing almost 130 emergency response vehicles and more than 70 trailers of equipment and supplies, including ready-to-eat meals and enough cots and blankets for more than 100,000 people. So emergency officials say they plan to airlift food and water to the city of almost 120,000 people.

"We're kind of like the ice cream man and we are delivering lunch and dinner", Dunder said. "The average length of deployment for our people is around two weeks".

As the situation develops, they expect to be called in to offer mobile services to hurricane-stricken areas.

Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from this disaster.

The impacts of Hurricane Florence will be felt for months to come.

Robotic skins provide motion to everyday inanimate objects
The skins are said to be made from elastic sheets embedded with sensors and actuators developed in Kramer-Bottiglio's lab. In fact, the researchers say OmniSkins could even be used on crumpled balls of paper and balloons.

Gov. Roy Cooper said Friday that Florence is "wreaking havoc" and he's concerned "whole communities" could be wiped away.

"First is financial support".

For monetary donations, you can help by going to their website, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting FLORENCE to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Dozens of Red Cross volunteers from the Arizona/New Mexico/El Paso region, including 27 from the Greater Phoenix chapter, are on the ground in areas that have been battered by Hurricane Florence. "Our hearts go out to all of those affected by this disaster". We also recommend completing and mailing the donation form on redcross.org with your check.

Blood donations are encouraged too. "If they don't need us for feeding, then they put us into bulk and we distribute products to people that they can use for cleanup and recovery". Contributions can also be made by visiting this link.

Some volunteers with the Red Cross could be needed in Texas.

Volunteers are giving up vacation and family time just to help out.

"My best ability to give back is to continue to do that work, so when it happens I can be here and have a general ability of how to set up and where we need to go", said Nelson.
