The damage caused by Hurricane Dorian last week is still being calculated, but thousands of people in the Bahamas and the Carolinas endured devastating floods and winds.

A spokesman for the American Red Cross said the fastest way to help is by giving money. Donations to the Red Cross can be made online at or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Dozens of other charities are also raising money to help aid the survivors of Dorian, such as the Salvation ArmyAmericaresMercy Corps, and the National Association of the Bahamas.
