Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew struck the eastern half of NC with a tremendous amount of damage on October 8, 2016 mostly related to record flooding.  Several rivers crested higher than previous major flood events like Hurricanes Fran and Floyd.  In all, 28 people lost their lives due to this storm.  Officials estimate over $1.5 billion in damage occured in NC alone.

NCBM Disaster Relief teams responded to the needs with 6 mobile kitchens: 3 from NC, 1 from Missouri, 1 from Virginia, and 1 from Arkansas.  In addition, we had 13 recovery sites setup at the height of cleanup efforts. 

Volunteers will be needed for many months to come and up to 2 years to help with rebuild.  To read the latest update, click on "Get Update" in the sidebar. To participate in rebuild efforts, click on "Volunteer Now".
