These summary messages aim to compile important updates we receive throughout the day from a broad range of sources covering a wide variety of topics related to Hurricane Matthew recovery efforts.

We work to gather these resources in a central location each day, though messages may at times be sent every 2-3 days depending on recovery developments and the availability of new information.

Our goal is to provide our Extension family with quick and easy access to the information they need.
