Hurricane Idalia Relief & Recovery

Hurricane Idalia path tracker: When will storm hit Florida? -



Hurricane Idalia made landfall in northwest Florida as a strong Category 3 hurricane, the first ever major storm to hit that area.  But, in the aftermath of any devastating storm, we believe the strength of a community shines brightest when its neighbors come together. It takes a collective effort to ensure that all our communities throughout Florida, and beyond, are resilient and have access to critical services and resources following a natural disaster.  


We stand with our neighbors in northwest Florida and are committed to helping communities recover, rebuild, and thrive. Together, we can turn the challenges brought about by the storm into opportunities for transformation and growth. Learn more about how you can contribute to Hurricane Idalia’s recovery efforts.

The Florida Grassroots Hurricane Community Recovery Fund, housed at the Miami Foundation, is anchored by those who came together in the wake of Irma in 2017. Donations are distributed to nonprofits in affected areas to provide both the immediate needs of families impacted by the storm and long-term recovery. These groups provide life-saving food and supplies, set up community centers, help families navigate relief programs, and build organizing and advocacy campaigns to ensure communities are front and center in long-term recovery efforts.
