Weekly Activity Update

Two years ago, Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Northeastern Seaboard. In honor of all those that suffered from the storm’s devastation, Humanity Road spent the week remembering, preparing, and continuing to spread awareness about hurricanes. Check out some of the hurricane campaigns as well as other events that took place this week!

The past week our volunteers were monitoring:

The shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, an hour outside of Seattle was monitored this past weekend. Tips were provided on not sharing photos of the event during the investigation, police scanner information in social media, and tips for parents about for talking to children about violence.  Messaging was shared in English and Spanish.

Volunteers were monitoring evacuations, resources and shelter information related to the Puna Lava Flow in Kilauea Hawaii. The lava flow at one point was moving along Pahoa Village Road at 10 yards per hour. Officials include the Hawaii County Government and Civil Defense.

While the rest of the world sees Hurricane Sandy as terrible storm in the past, many residents are still living with the devastation everyday, as recovery continues in New York and New Jersey.
