Tropical Storm Isaac: Puerto Rico Prepared

Tropical Storm Isaac unleashed heavy rain and winds off Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Thursday and is expected to continue to strengthen as it crosses over Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rico Office of Emergency Services, FEMA and the relief community are standing ready to assess the damage and begin the recovery process.

Isaac also poses a big threat to Haiti, where it should hit over the weekend, and to Florida, where it should make landfall by Monday, August 27.

As always, cash donations are the most useful to the relief agencies so they can acquire the precise materials needed.
