Its just insane to me to see the places where I grew up get trashed from this mega storm. Almost all of the people I hold dear from family to friends live in Florida and thankfully they are all ok so far. The danger isn't over yet at the storm surges are supposed to be pretty horrific. Below if a list of ways you can help. (Credit WTOP)
