• Hurricane Beryl response


Salvation Army teams are responding to the needs of those impacted by Hurricane Beryl that swept through the Caribbean and into Mexico last week.

Salvation Army staff in the Caribbean Territory, along with cadets, officers and soldiers, are busy responding to the needs of those impacted by Hurricane Beryl – the category four storm that left a trail of destruction across the region late last week, killing at least 10 people, before being downgraded to a tropical storm and smashing into Mexico last Friday.


Hundreds of thousands of homes in Jamaica were left without power, and almost every home was destroyed on two small islands in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

 

The Salvation Army Mountainside Corps and an outpost in Great Bay suffered major damage and assessments have begun to facilitate a timely Salvation Army response.


Teams have been preparing grocery hampers for distribution in Jamaica.

 

In St. Vincent, teams have distributed hot meals to people in and out of hurricane shelters.
