Tropical Depression Nine Response Update from The Salvation Army of Florida

Tampa, FL (September 23, 2022) Tropical Depression 9 has formed in the Caribbean Sea and The Salvation Army of Florida's Emergency Disaster Services is ready to respond. Although the depression is still far away from the coast, it is forecast to become a Major Hurricane (Category 3 or higher) with potential landfall someplace along the Florida peninsula Tuesday or Wednesday next week. As part of its preparations, the Florida Division’s Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) department is on standby to respond to the effects of a strong Category 3 storm. 

The Salvation Army of Florida has 27 Canteens (Mobile Feeding Units) ready to mobilize across the Division as well as one field kitchen. The Tampa EDS 50,000 sq foot warehouse has bulk supplies on hand to initiate a major disaster response.

In communications with the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management and partner agencies, the Florida EDS department continues to monitor the depression and encourages the public to remain vigilant and be prepared.

How to Help:

The best way to The Salvation Army in its relief efforts is to make a financial contribution. Monetary donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors.
