Apple to Donate to Hurricane Michael Relief Efforts

[2018-10-10 20:04:39]

Apple CEO Tim Cook tonight announced that Apple will be donating to recovery and relief efforts for those in the Gulf Coast region who are located in the path of Hurricane Michael. Image via The Weather Channel Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida earlier today causing widespread devastation with winds up to 155 miles per hour. It is now making its way across Georgia and is expected to hit several states in the southeast, including Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. I grew up on the shores of the Gulf Coast, near Pensacola and Mobile, and that region holds a special place in my heart. That’s never been more true than now. To all those communities in the path of Hurricane Michael, you are in my prayers. Please stay safe.— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) October 11, 2018 When the hurricane hit Florida, it was classified as a Category 4 storm, the strongest to hit the continental United States since Hurricane Andrew. It has now weakened to a Category 1 storm, but has done serious damage and left hundreds of thousands without power. Apple is standing with our friends and neighbors in the Gulf Coast region, and will be donating to recovery and relief efforts.— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) October 11, 2018 Cook did not say how much Apple plans to donate, but for other recent hurricane disasters, the company has provided $1 million in aid.Tag: Tim CookDiscuss this article in our forums
