The Diva has been impressed with the many “spontaneous” volunteer efforts in the aftermath of H. Florence:, such as the Cajun Navy and Chef Jose Andres (World Central Kitchen). Re the last mentioned, see: He served 3.6 million free meals in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Now he’s feeding people hit by Florence.
Example of private sector co. donating its services. See: Hurricane Florence evacuees can find free lodging through Airbnb
Also impressive have been the emergency compacts among states and the mutual aid systems the utility companies use.
