Health information for hurricanes and tropical storms

Posted in: All Members, Blog

From the DISASTER-OUTREACH-LIB email discussion list:

HHS Secretary Azar declared Public Health Emergencies in North Carolina and South Carolina Due to Hurricane Florence. In addition the Determination that a Public Health Emergency Exists​ in the Territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands as a Result of Hurricane Maria was renewed.


The National Network of Libraries of Medicine Southeast Atlantic Region has been working with the National Library of Medicine to collect hurricane resources on one page. Note: the blog post is dated September 10, but it will be updated as needed. Please check back for new resources over the coming days.


Many areas will experience power outages due to the hurricane, and Tropical Storm Mangkhut has left much  of the U.S. Territory of Guam without power. The resources below provide guidance, factsheets, and more for first responders, healthcare providers, and others who are dealing with power outages or anticipate them.
