City Responds to Damage from Isaias’ Destructive Path

Philadelphia and Philadelphia-area residents faced tough weather on Tuesday, facing heavy rain and harsh winds from tropical storm Isaias, resulting in destructive tornadoes and flooding.

Hundreds of thousands of people and businesses have lost power, and utilities say it could take days for electricity to be fully restored.

If your home is flooded but have nowhere to go, reach out to the Red Cross Hotline: 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767). You can call 311 to get a variety of meal sources for those who are displaced. For more information on how you can get assistance due to Isaias, go to this link.
