2017 Hurricane Season

The Humanitarian Response Lab in the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics is working with the FEMA NBEOC and Logistics Management teams to gather and present data for situational awareness across public and private supply networks during the Hurricane Irma response.

We invite you to share any information deficits or constraints as you ramp up your supply chain so that we can gather information and help emergency management agencies address issues such as:
- Access and re-entry into affected locations
- Road conditions
- Fuel supply
- Power restoration
- Commercial restoration
Please send an email to humanitarian@mit.edu.

Latest Situation Report (September 14)

FUEL: Fuel supply is being restored. Most retail fueling points have reopened; supply at ports is sufficient; and police escorts are enabling more effective distribution. In addition, FEMA and the State of Florida is providing fuel directly for first responders and utility crews so that retail fuel locations can provide better service to the public.

ACCESS: The State of Florida has set up a page for private sector re-entry. Local elected officials and Law Enforcement Officers work together to determine when an area is safe enough for individuals to return. Individuals and businesses seeking to provide essential commodities and services to impacted areas will be allowed reentry by possessing and presenting to local officials: 
  - A valid government-issued ID, such as a Driver’s License or passport; 
  - Proof of Employment, such as Employer credentials or a letter on employer letterhead; and 
  - A Demonstrated Need to enter the area, such as a work order, inventory list, or employer authorization. Local officials know their communities and are well suited to facilitate a safe and timely reentry process.
If you have any questions, please contact the State Emergency Response Team’s Emergency Support Function 18 via the Private Sector Hotline at (850) 410-1403 or by email at esf18@em.myflorida.com.
