Summary

The US Veterans Hall of Fame natural disaster response team is ready to deploy to the east coast region between Savannah, GA and north towards Cape Hatteras (North Carolina). These are familiar grounds for us as just one year ago, we were boots on the ground for our operations with Hurricane Florence. Now our neighbors need us again as storm surges of 4-7 ft are expected, with the potential for even higher flood walls. We are going in with low water rescue capability to evacuate citizens.

Challenge

Hurricane Dorian is expected to hit the eastern coast of the US within the next 36 hours as a high Category 2 hurricane. Cities like Charleston, SC will be inundated with water as high as 7 feet (if not higher), and are likely to be under water for a week or more. Streams and rivers are guaranteed to push inland and evacuees will not be able to exit (who haven't left at this point). As well they can expect food, power and shelter shortages for weeks post-hurricane.

Solution

The US Veterans Hall of Fame will be a boots on the ground operation, in conjunction with local authorities, to evacuate any remaining citizens who send out distress calls or are in apparent danger. We will also be ready to provide a cache of post-hurricane supplies to evacuees with this effort. Health and food necessities will need to be supplemented for the cities citizens for a given period of time (to be determined)

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact is that we hope to have the citizens back up to speed, living as normal a lifestyle as possible by the end of this hurricane season: if no other disasters follow this trail of coastline.
