HURRICANE ETA 2020
UPDATED TUESDAY DECEMBER 15, 2020 1:28 PM EST
Matthew 25: Ministries is responding to Hurricane Eta, which made landfall early morning on November 12 near Cedar Key, FL as a Tropical Storm after sweeping across Central America the week prior.
The extremely powerful hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 140 mph when it made landfall in Nicaragua on November 3 and delivered torrential rainfall across parts of Central America, causing widespread flooding and devastating landslides.
Tropical Storm Eta continued to weaken as it moved northeast across the US toward the Atlantic, and brought more than 7 inches of rainfall to the Carolinas.
So far, Matthew 25 has shipped more than 20 truckloads of relief supplies including personal care supplies, household and cleaning products, blankets, and more to Central America in response to Hurricane Eta and Hurricane Iota.
