UMCOR is in contact with their disaster response consultant in Puerto Rico, assessing needs caused by Hurricane Irene; once the storm clears the Bahamas, UMCOR will be in touch there as well.
UMCOR Disaster Response staff are also in touch with annual conference disaster response personnel in areas that may be affected as the storm moves northward.
Should New York City lose power, the UMCOR website will be down. UMCOR will do their best to post updates on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/UMCOR) until power is restored.
