Since early August, Episcopal Relief & Development has been responding, in partnership with local Episcopalians and Anglicans, and other relief agencies, to the effects of:
+ severe flooding in the Indian state of  West Bengal after heavy rains in July 
   and August; 
+ Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm near 
   Rockport,  Texas, on the barrier islands beyond Corpus Christi on August 25, 
   and then moved northwest to flood the greater Houston area;
+ Hurricane Irma, which pulverized parts of the Leeward Islands as a Category 
   5 on September 5-6, and then moved north to hit  Florida and Georgia;
+ a magnitude 1 earthquake that caused major damage September 19 in 
   central  Mexico, including in Mexico City, Oaxaca, Guerrero, Morelos and 
   Puebla;
+ Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 hurricane that tore through the Virgin Islands 
   and  Puerto Rico on September 20;
+ and wildfires in  Northern California that erupted the night of October 8 and
