Family Hit by Hurricane Michael

This is my family. They live in Panama City, Florida and were severely impacted by Hurricane Michael. The storm wiped out parts of the city and damaged their home. They have home insurance, but of course it doesn't cover wind and water damage. They waited out the storm in Birmingham and are thankfully all safe. My dad works for the county and is heading back tomorrow to assess the damages and start cleaning up the city. Meanwhile, my step-mom is packing up the kids (5 & 15) to stay with some friends in Tampa. The power and water are out for an indefinite amount of time. They don't know when they'll be able to go back home and money is tight. I live 1000 miles away and feel pretty helpless all the way up here, but I want to try to help them get back on their feet in whatever way I can.
