Help the relief effort for Hurricane Beryl


On Monday 1 July, Hurricane Beryl made landfall on the island of Carriacou in Grenada as a Category 4 hurricane, causing extensive damage. The hurricane intensified further as it entered the Caribbean Sea, peaking as a Category 5 hurricane by Tuesday 2 July. The hurricane is ongoing and has severely damaged infrastructure and many areas without electricity. 


The World Health Organisation reported that 1,032 people required evacuation in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, 2,500 in Grenada, and 129 in Trinidad and Tobago.
