Typhon Yutu

Typhoon Yutu, known locally as Rosario, is the strongest cyclone on Earth and has devastated the Mariana Islands (Washington Post). The storm’s 180 mph winds obliterated the island of Tinian and parts of the largest island, Saipan. Hundreds of residents are homeless and without power and water.

…Many have lost absolutely everything

​We, in the Bay Area, want to do our part in helping to recover and rebuild from this devastating typhoon. We have organized a relief drive to collect the much needed emergency supplies. Our goal is to fill to capacity a 40 ft. container (compliments of Matson) to ship by November 17.
