As recovery efforts continue post Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma threatens in the Atlantic.

Romans have rallied to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.  The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office has led the charge via its RomeGACares effort, through which necessities are being gathered and carried via convoy to storm victims.

Sergeant Carrie Edge, Public Information Officer for the Sheriff’s Office, says that donations to RomeGACares are being accepted at 1929 North Broad Street; the location’s hours for today are 8 am until 6 pm.  A list of acceptable items is posted on the FCSO website at www.floydsheriff.com.  Cleaning supplies and disaster relief kits are particularly in demand right now, states Edge.

Edge enthuses that Rome and Floyd County is a giving community; she says that she’s been inspired by their outpouring of support for storm victims.

Donations towards the RomeGACares effort will be accepted through September 15th.  More information is available through the website and via the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office page on Facebook.

The Museum of Flight at the Russell Regional Airport, another local organization that has sought to galvanize local hurricane relief efforts, has pooled their resources with the Sheriff’s Office, according to Matt DeVille, the museum’s Development Director.

Representatives from the Northwest Georgia chapter of the American Red Cross continue to provide assistance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  The organization is also preparing to respond to Hurricane Irma as it nears the United States and its territories.
