The day began with a massive 8.1 earthquake in the Pacific offshore from Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico. It continued with historic hurricane Irma moving through the Caribbean, striking Cuba and heading for Florida. Millions of people were forced to flee. These dramatic events followed only days after record flooding in Houston, Texas and along the Gulf Coast of the United States. For many of these people, their lives are one disaster after another. They need help. Fortunately for those in America, there are enormous resources to assist the victims, including government aid, insurance coverage, millions of small donors and multitudes of volunteer aid workers.
