Tornadoes often strike with little to no warning, making evacuations difficult.
Following tornadoes, the most requested items from Direct Relief’s inventory are emergency medical backpacks, over-the-counter products, and personal protective equipment.
Evacuees or displaced residents without the medicine they need to manage a condition like diabetes, hypertension, or high blood pressure can rapidly find themselves in a medical crisis, making it critical to ensure chronic disease medications are available.
