Hurricane Isaac did a lot more damage in South Mississippi than most of us thought would happen. Much of the damage occurred when Isaac's rain bands dumped more than 20 inches of rain in some areas flooding homes in counties like Pearl River, Jackson and Hancock.
While Isaac did some significant damage, it was not as widespread as the damage that Hurricane Katrina inflicted on South Mississippi. If you are among the lucky folks this time around who had little or no damage, then won't you consider helping Isaac's victims.
There are several ways to help through volunteering. Check with the United Way, American Red Cross, Salvation Army and even your church. Volunteers are needed for this recovery effort.
If you are not physically able to help out, then consider donating a few dollars to a charity that is helping with the relief effort. We saw after Hurricane Katrina volunteers are who made the difference in the recovery of South Mississippi.
Now is our time to step forward and help. This is a chance for each of us to help our neighbors in their time of need.
