Thank you to the many H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 members who have volunteered to respond to the emergent anticipated circumstances as a result of Hurricane Irene. A hurricane response is very fluid. The track and intensity of the storm is always difficult but all models are indicating a minimum Cat 1 hurricane hitting the south Jersey coast is a certainty. The issues will be flooding and loss of power due to the high winds. The State of New Jersey VOAD has included H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 in their storm aftermath plans. As of now, we don’t know the duration of our responsibilities so please keep the volunteers coming, the more we have the less the burden. The H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 Executive Board will be releasing more detailed information regarding our response in the next 24 hours.
