Nor-easter Threatens Recovery Efforts in Northeast

A nor-easter is currently bringing wind, rain and snow to the already devastated Northeast, a week after Hurricane Sandy. The National Weather Service predicts the storm will last into Thursday, bringing wind and wet snow to New Jersey, up to three inches of snow to Philadelphia and from six to 12 inches of snow to southeastern New York and New England. This storm threatens to complicate the current relief efforts that are underway for Hurricane Sandy.

The State Offices of Emergency Management and the Relief Organizations offering assistance are asking the public to make financial donations.

In-Kind Donations Offers:
The best way for you to donate is to make your donation known by entering your offer into the National Donations Management Network ( where it will be visible to the State Emergency Management Teams and the Relief Organizations with which they work. These teams will evaluate the donation offers and will contact you directly to either accept or decline your offer. Please do not drop off donations without confirmation from the relief center - doing so can take precious time away from helping those in need.

If you need transportation for your donation you can make a request for transportation when you make your donation offer and then there are companies that will provide discounted/donated services to the relief organizations if they accept your offer.

Thank you again for trying to help those in need during this difficult time.

Each of the East Coast States participates in the National Donations Management Network and can be found at the following links:
