North Carolina Preparing for Hurricane Earl

The State of North Carolina is bracing for Hurricane Earl to make landfall sometime Friday morning as a category 3. The State of North Carolina is prepared on a number of levels, but one in particular is standing ready should there be widespread damage. The State maintains their National Donations Management Network portal, powered by Aidmatrix, that is used heavily during disasters to capture unsolicited in-kind donations. The State then takes on the duty of connecting those donation offers with the State's VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) members who have access to this system to post their needs and pull donation offers.

Hurricanes Fiona and Gaston are waiting directly behind it. Updates will be posted as they become available.
