We have been closely monitoring Hurricane Lane as it progresses towards Hawaii. The Category 3 hurricane has not yet made landfall, but Hawaii island is already experiencing heavy flooding and high winds. People on the islands are also being warned of the high risk of flash floods and mudslides due to the heavy rain. We continue to follow the hurricane’s progress as it moves closer to Hawaii, and are in touch with nonprofit partners on the ground, as well as partners that are monitoring the situation and ready to respond.
We are also offering subsidized pricing for nonprofits and private individuals wishing to use solar lights or phone chargers for hurricane relief. Applications can be submitted at luminaid.com/subsidyprogram; we are fast-tracking all Hawaii-related applications for same-day responses.
We will continue to post updates as we learn more about the hurricane’s progress.
Hurricane Florence has devastated the North Carolina coastline, leaving families without power and causing flood waters to drastically rise. The need for solar phone chargers and lanterns is substantial, and we have partnered with Mercy Corps, as a featured Give Light, Get Light partner, to distribute our lights to those left without power.
