Support Disability-Led Disaster Response for Beryl in Texas

Donate to support disability-led disaster response for people with disabilities and people with access and functional needs in the path of Beryl in Texas.

The Texas Gulf Coast is bracing for Tropical Storm Beryl, just two weeks after Tropical Storm Alberto wreaked havoc across northern Mexico, southeast Texas, and western Louisiana. Earlier this week, Hurricane Beryl left a trail of devastation in Barbados, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Tragically, 11 lives have been lost due to the storm.

Beryl is expected to regain hurricane strength as it moves over the unusually warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center forecasts landfall along the lower- to mid-Texas coast early Monday morning, with peak storm surges of up to 5 feet along the entire Texas coast. Moderate to strong winds and up to 12 inches of rain are expected to impact eastern Texas and western Louisiana.
