Hurricane Patricia Relief
On October 23, 2015, Hurricane Patricia struck the Mexican state of Jalisco. The Category 5 storm was one of the strongest ever recorded, with wind speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour. Fortunately, the storm made landfall in a sparsely populated area, narrowly avoiding major population centers such as Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, and few casualties have been reported. But widespread flooding has been seen throughout southwestern Mexico, and the state of Jalisco has suffered severe infrastructure damage to roads and buildings.
To contribute to immediate and long-term humanitarian aid efforts, please consider supporting the following organizations working to evaluate the damage and aid in the recovery.
