Samaritan's Purse Prepares Response to Hurricane Beryl

Please pray for storm-devastated areas of the windward islands as we prepare to respond in the wake of category 4 Hurricane Beryl.

Hurricane Beryl roared ashore as a category 4 storm on the island nation of Grenada Monday morning, July 1, packing 150 mph winds and dangerous storm surge. Many of the country’s island communities were decimated and left under water before Beryl continued its destructive path toward the Gulf of Mexico.

Samaritan’s Purse is working with local partners to determine needs and a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) is standing by as we prepare to respond.

This is the first Atlantic hurricane of 2024 and the strongest storm in recorded history to pass through the Grenadines, a small island chain including Grenada and St. Lucia in the southern Caribbean’s Windward Islands.

Many homes were destroyed and thousands of people are without electricity as islands along the destructive path continue to brace for powerful wind and heavy rains.

Please pray for these many suffering communities, for the local churches, and for our team as we mount a response.

Samaritan's Purse responds to the urgent needs of families devastated by the wind, rain, and storm surge of catastrophic hurricanes. We come alongside hurting people to bring emergency relief and practical help in the Name of Jesus Christ.
