The first storm became catastrophic as it advanced through the triestatal area, turning the main roads into streams, flooding the subway and the streets, and causing emergency states in New York and New Jersey.
At least 36 people died, including a child from New York City, and tens of thousands were overwhelmed by floods that devastated the area of the three states with historical rains, at least one tornado and wild winds.
Next we share a guide on how to receive assistance and how to help others after the devastation caused by the first leg:
The American Red Cross is responding to the communities most affected by the storm.You can support your efforts by making an economic donation or offering your time as a volunteer.

Our food banks in the triestatal area are our main emergency food suppliers during times of crisis.They supply resources to food pantries and local services agencies.
You can help by sending a text message with the word Food at 707070, where you will receive a link compatible with Apple Pay and compatible with mobile devices to donate our local food banks.Note that the processing rates will be deduced from their mobile donation unless you choose to cover those costs.
With the needs of the community alReady at record levels due to pandemic and maNY food banks that face the loss of volunteers, food banks have been forced to depend on financial donations to replenish shelves, deliver stable products to familiesand keep the emergency food chain stable.

Help for undocumented:
Governor Phil Murphy announced on Friday the preliminary details of a plan to grant subsidies to small companies in New Jersey affected by the severe time caused by the tropical storm Ida on Wednesday and early Thursday of Thursday.
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) has the task of creating and managing the program, which will provide immediate short -term support for the reimbursement of rent / mortgage to companies and non -profit organizations of New Jersey with up to 50 employeesthat suffered physical damage on September 1 and 2 of 2021, and any additional flood immediately posterior.
Through the proposed $ 10 million subsidies program, small companies and non -profit entities with up to 50 employees could request subsidies from $ 1,000 to $ 5,000.
The proposed program will be presented to the NJEDA Board for consideration and approval at a special meeting on Wednesday, September 8.If approved, the njeda hopes to announce the complete details and the application schedule for the subsidies program after that meeting.

What else can you do?
Open your home to a homeless pet
This is the time of the year in which our shelters and rescue of animals are usually at its maximum capacity due to spring litters.However, the persistent impact of pandemic has led to continuous operational restrictions and volunteer reductions, while the daily needs of our furry friends have only grown up.The need to place homeless pets in permanent homes has never been so big.
During this time, NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 are being associated with dozens of animal shelters and local rescues to connect love families with dogs, cats and other domestic animals throughout the area of the three states.Through our campaign, vacate the shelters you can see the pets available from the comfort of your home, make an appointment with a refuge or rescue and complete the adoption process.
Visit to vacate the shelters.com to start the process.
You can also help by online donation to shelters and rescue of local animals.Visit the Greater Good Charisies donations site in vacation.com.
